Happy October to everyone! The UWFM team hasn’t wasted any time since the school year has started and have jumped right into the thick of things. Recently we got to show off our car in Shelton at AutoX and begin some driver testing for T35 at E18. Additionally, the team just finished its first round of PDRs. Boasting over 80 members this year, it was great to see everyone working hard on preliminary designs. With a busy year ahead, we look forwards to driver testing, ADRs, and more fun team events!
Your contributions significantly help us improve our team each year. This year, we have set a goal of $10,000. All of your donations are extremely invaluable and contribute to items from screws and washers to battery cells and high-performance brakes. Thank you so much to everyone who has continued to support our team. The clock is ticking! There are less than 9 weeks left in our crowdfunding campaign. We need your support! We dedicate ourselves to building the best race car, and we look forward to building it with your help.

On Sunday, October 15th, we continued the tradition of holding our AutoX fundraiser in Shelton! Thank you so much to everyone who came, we had nearly 100 supporters come and track their cars. Despite some rain and a radiator leak, everyone was still able to have fun and keep things running smoothly. If you couldn’t make it to the last AutoX event, keep an eye out for the next event in Spring!
