Mini Baja SAE

Baja SAE is an international collegiate design competition sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).  The contest challenges each team to function as a small manufacturing firm whose task is to design, fabricate, market, and race an off-road vehicle prototype that will be evaluated from a variety of manufacturing angles.  Each year, various SAE sections host three competitions in which teams from across the nation and around the world bring their vehicles to undergo rigorous testing.  The vehicles are judged based on their ability to traverse a harsh, off-road racing course, while not succumbing to the rigors of it. WSU’s Baja SAE Team, Shocker Racing, was started in 1986, and the first year to compete was 1993.  Since then, Shocker Racing has competed in two competitions annually, with the exception of 1997.
