What we do
Formula SAE and Formula Student challenge students to build a single seat, open wheeled racecar to compete against other schools at annual international competitions. There are many areas of evaluation in these competitions including engineering design, business and cost as well as numerous dynamic events.
At the beginning of the project the team establishes overall plans, focus areas, needed competencies, organizational structures and budgets; in addition to recruiting highly motivated students. The team then concentrates their efforts to focus on problem identification and high-level concepts before moving onto simulation and design. Once the design of the car is finalized, manufacturing and assembly commence. The car is tested and continuously improved through all of these processes right up until it is time to compete.
MAC Formula Electric prides itself for being on the cutting edge of motorsport technology by implementing techniques and design features which are rarely seen in anything other than premier racing series. The use of CNC machinery and CAD modelling as well as various FEA software has allowed us to detail, design and analyze every portion of our car to the smallest detail. Taking full advantage of all the opportunities presented to the team we were able to design not only our best performing, but also by far our most efficient car to date.
