    Program Event Guides of previous events

    Hello all!

    My name is Rodrigo Luengo and I'm a part of FSAE-USB, Universidad Simon Bolivar's Formula team. I've noticed that in the SAE website, specifically on the latest Formula SAE Michigan event section they usually publish the respective Program Event guide they hand out physically at competition, the one with each car and a brief description and their specs. I would like to know if there's any way to access the guides for previous years' events since I'm interested in statistically comparing some basic dimensions of the cars and their relations wiith lap times. I've looked them up in the SAE website and this forum with no luck, perhaps I'm not searching correctly, but any orientation would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Rodrigo Luengo

    You can try emailing the SAE event organizers. I've enquired about the same thing about 2 years ago, but they didn't seem to follow through. Hopefully you will have better luck!

    The Internet Archive Wayback Machine is your friend, at least back to 2013 --
    https://web.archive.org/web/20130815...laseries/fsae/
    I tried the Program Event Guide pdf download from the December 7 snapshot and it worked,
    https://web.archive.org/web/20131127...ganprogram.pdf

    The Archive may go back further, but you will have to dig for the URL. I think FSAE was linked to another part of the main SAE site in earlier years -- please post back the link(s) if you find them.

    I'm sure there are several people who have downloaded and archived these personally over the years. Kettering should have a folder on their team computer somewhere with all of the program guides archived from at least 2009 - 2015.
    Anyone else have any to contribute to the cause?

    Hello

    Thanks everyone for responding. The wayback machine was quite useful, as Mr. Milliken said, but the link works as far back as 2013. After digging a little bit on the SAE website archived in 2012, I was able to find the FSAE Michigan event page with all it's announcements or documents but, unfortunately, the program event guides were not among them

    Furthermore, I wrote an email to SAE and got the following response:

    Hello unfortunately we do not have any of the old guides in an online archive that would be accessible for you.

    Bummer, though I still got my hopes on someone having archived them themselves.

    Cheers,

    Rodrigo

    Beleave It or Not..

    Actually, I have some of this data for a few years. Its in Excel spreadsheet(s). Here's a sample from the 2015 Event(s)Team Data Sample.jpg

    You'll be hard pressed to correlate dimensions with results, though, unless you do some sub-system categorization to add some causal parameters. I.E. powertrain layout causes wheelbase extension, etc
