Wanna see something cool Oct 1 at mosport go-keart track?
 
So it kinda late notice but I figured I'd post this anyway.

If your into formula racing, you might be interested in coming to the UofT shootout. Its held by Uof T and shcools from
Around Ontario and even the states will be there.

The competition is a formula style racecar built with a motorcycle engine weighing about 500lb, I think there's an event on the grand prix too so there's lots to see that day, for the event its free so if you want come by

My bad I don't have a pic handy but I will post some, and for now google formula SAE if you interested

:D

StraightSix 09-30-2011 01:35 AM

What time is the event scheduled for? I go to Ryerson too, i heard about this a couple days ago.
DIY what program are you in?

DIY 09-30-2011 07:51 AM

For the most part its an all dat event, will prob end around 5... I'm in mech Eng, but it you want to join the team its open to all programs, as we need marketing and busimess stuff too

StraightSix 09-30-2011 08:46 AM

Well I'm in mech eng so i dont think i'd be very helpful in marketing lol.
I'm gonna try and make it out to this, seems pretty interesting. What are the different kinds of competitions? Is it just timed laps or are you also competing in acceleration, braking, etc...

DIY 09-30-2011 08:56 AM

Its kinda like an autocross setup on a track, otherwise wed need aero... But the real comps that take place aere detroit, California and England(we get to goto silverdtone :D) if you goto the formula sae site you can get a better read on what the real competition is like... And its definately more involved...

Khe 23 is where the shop is so come by today if you want to check it out, ill be there around 2 probs
