2019 marks UWashington Formula Motorsports’ 30th year of designing, building and racing some of the world’s fastest Formula SAE cars. This year is special because it marks the first year that UWFM will participate in Germany and Spain with an electric vehicle.
This summer, UWFM is determined to win Formula Student Electric in Fontana, CA, pass electric scrutineering in Germany, and possibly compete in Austria.
Building and racing Formula SAE cars is expensive. A single set of batteries for our electric car can cost over $6,000 and attending competition overseas costs over $32,000
Since we are a student-organized collegiate club, UWFM relies on sponsorship and donations to cover 100% of our costs.
Help us make history by donating to help cover our annual costs. By supporting our program, you’re doing more than supporting the next generation of engineering and business professionals. You’re supporting the UW, your community, your country, even yourself.
(Because our organization is a registered 501(c)(3), any donation made to UWFM is tax deductible.)
Formula SAE is an engineering design competition for undergraduate and graduate students. The design directive is for teams is to develop and construct a single-seat race car for the non-professional weekend autocross racer with the best overall package of design, construction, performance and cost.
The competition provides participants with the opportunity to enhance their engineering design and project management skills by applying learned classroom theories in a competitive setting.
