Formula SAE Michigan


Formula SAE Michigan: May 9-12, 2018

Michigan International Speedway - Brooklyn, Michigan

Formula SAE is an engineering design competition for college and university student members that challenge engineering students to engineer a race car for optimum performance, endurance and emissions.  Students design and build cars to compete in a variety of events.  This year's Formula SAE Michigan Competition will take place from May 9-12 at Michigan International Speedway.

MacLean-Fogg is excited and proud to join Formula SAE for another year as a sponsor in 2018!  Participating teams from over 80 universities across the United States and world will have the chance to win the "The MacLean-Fogg Fastening Challenge".  




MacLean-Fogg Fastening Challenge

IMG_0965The importance of fastening in vehicle design and performance is often overlooked and under engineered; that's why we want you to show us how you used your skills to build a robust fastened system. The MacLean-Fogg Fastening Challenge is a competition within Formula SAE that allows the competing teams to present a particularly challenging fastener problem they encountered during their preparation for the competition. MacLean-Fogg representatives from across the company judge the submissions based on creativity, engineering acumen, and resourcefulness. Three winning teams are selected each year and receive monetary rewards for their ingenuity. In past years the MacLean-Fogg judges have enjoyed submissions from everything from simple solutions to body attachments, to complicated fastening systems for engine mounts.
