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

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...

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 ) 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
