SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge(R)

Calumet, Michigan, USA

The SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge (CSC) is an engineering design competition for college and university student members that challenge engineering students to re engineer an existing snowmobile to reduce emissions and noise. Their modified snowmobiles will compete in a variety of events including emissions, noise, fuel economy/endurance, acceleration, handling, static display, cold start and design.  This competition took place at Michigan Tech University's Keweenaw Research Center in Calumet, MI on March 6-11, 2017.

MacLean-Fogg is always excited to sponsor the SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge!  During this competition, participating teams from several universities across the United States compete for their chance to win "The MacLean-Fogg Clean Snowmobile Cup". This year in the Internal Combustion Class, First Place was awarded to Canada's  École de Technologie Supérieure, followed by University of Wisconsin-Madison in Second Place and University of Minnesota, Duluth in Third. Congratulations to all participating teams in this year's competition. We're looking forward to next year's engineering innovation!
