McMaster Baja Racing Team is a group of devoted undergraduate students at McMaster University who work together to compete in the SAE Baja Series.
The team is tasked each year to design, build, test and race a small off-road vehicle, which must endure four long hours of severe punishment on a track designed to test the abilities and durability of the vehicle. Track obstacles include logs, jumps, mud bogs, boulders, telephone poles, as well as 100 other similar cars.
For more information on the competition please visit the SAE Baja website.
Consisting of over 128 students studying a variety of engineering disciplines; McMaster Baja Racing provides members with intimate technical and design experience through developing and producing a performance off-road vehicle.
Students are provided the opportunity to gain specialized skills through on-going vehicle component development within specialized sub-teams consisting of: Chassis, Controls, Data Acquisition, Drivetrain, Ergonomics, and Suspension.
