Constructing a Race Car From the Ground Up

With uncertainty surrounding in-person competitions due to the global pandemic, members of the Purdue Baja Racing team spent hundreds of hours designing and building a single-seat race car to compete in the Baja SAE competition. With combined efforts, their four-wheel-drive race car propelled them to a top ten finish in the competition.

“This is a huge milestone for us,” said Anthony Anton, the team’s chief engineer . “I’m so happy to be part of the team that made a 4-wheel-drive car happen, even in the midst of a pandemic. This will definitely influence how we build cars in the years to come.”
