About Us

In short, we build a race car.

Formula SAE

An engineering design competition for undergraduate and graduate students sponsored by SAE International

The Grizzlies Racing group at Oakland University is a student run organization which builds a race car to race in the Formula SAE series. Oakland University has been racing with the Society of Automotive Engineers for decades. In the mid 1990s, the chapter switched to the Formula SAE competition. 2003 was the first of many years with great success, when Oakland University placed 13th of 130 teams and set the Formula SAE record for most improvement year to year. That success continues to this day.

The Formula SAE competition is based around a formula style race car running an engine with a maximum displacement of 750 cc. The vehicle starts with a student design that follows the guidelines put together for Formula SAE competition vehicles. The competition encourages students to be innovative and develop new ways to come out above competitors. When the design is completed, the car is built and tested by the students to prove their designs.
