WHAT WE DO


Every year, the McGill Baja Racing Team builds a new single-seat off-road vehicle and brings it across North America to compete with other universities from around the world. Working through the entire design cycle together, we develop real-world skills, equipping us to be the next generation of great engineers.

WHAT IS BAJA SAE?


Baja SAE is a 3-4 day design competition run by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Teams of students from all over the world participate to design, build, and test small off-road cars.

BAJA SAE

WHAT IS BAJA SAE?


Baja SAE is a 3-4 day student design competition run by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Teams of students from around the world participate to design, build, and test small off-road mini-Baja vehicles. Simulating real-world engineering design projects and their related challenges, teams are challenged to design and build a prototype for a reliable, maintainable, ergonomic, and economic production vehicle that serves a recreational user market. The students must function as a team to design, engineer, build, test, promote, and compete with a vehicle within the limits of the rules. Vehicles are judged on a series of static and dynamic events.


STATIC EVENTS


Technical Inspection

Design and Sales Presentation

Design and Cost Reports

DYNAMIC EVENTS


Brake Check

Hill Climb

Acceleration Test

Maneuverability Test

4 Hour Endurance Race

Specialty Events(i.e. Rock Crawl, Mud Bog, Suspension)
