Northwestern Formula Racing is Northwestern University's Formula SAE team.
Our mission is to learn by doing, produce the world’s best engineers by building critical engineering skills, manufacture a competitive vehicle, and place alumni in top engineering jobs around the world.
Throughout the school year, we raise funds for, design, build, test, and enter an inter-collegiate competition with an open-wheeled, motorcycle-engine powered road racing car.
We expect to unveil NFR18 on April 24, 2018 at 4 p.m. outside the Ford Motor Company Engineering Design Center at Northwestern University.
Northwestern Formula Racing expects to compete at the Formula SAE Michigan competition between May 9 and May 12, 2018 at the Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan. Let us know if you'd like us to be there!
