Thread: Formula SAE Lincoln 2015

  1. #11
    While the Lincoln Airport is amazing and the city itself is pretty cool, moving the competition back to California (or perhaps Washington state) would result in many more interested volunteers and companies that are good matches for FSAE graduates.

    At this point, given that both the US competitions are selling out, perhaps there is demand for a third event.

    Anyone notice that Lincoln posted the site map for 2015, except that it is last year's map? Was this a mistake, or are the autocross and endurance courses exactly the same as a year ago?

    K,

    Good catch, you can find the 2015 maps I posted here

    I'll let SAE know they need to change it.

    Any suggestions for where to follow this event other than this website?

    Hopefully, someone at the track can live post times or commentary.

    The rumor mill started swirling about a month ago that we might see some much improved coverage next year. (This is actually what brought me back to the forum recently.) Keep the pressure on and let SAE know that there is serious interest in it not only from alumni, but parents, girlfriends, and hardworking students that may not be able to make it to competition for whatever reason.

    It provides more exposure for event sponsors so as long as the necessary upgrades to infrastructure don't break the bank, it's nearly a win-win.

    Also can we keep this to just FSAELincoln and what happens there rather than a huge thread about how design events are/should run (Eg FSAEMichigan) that would be super

    Whoah. Everyone is way over 200 kg! (I read that some cars are w/driver, but why quote your car's weight w/driver?)

    I think the survey that you fill out for the event guide asks you to list vehicle weight with 150lb or 175 lb driver
