Temple Formula Racing unveiled their next generation, 2017 racing competition car today. Before leaving for the national Formula SAE in Michigan, the group showed off the final product, designed and built in-house, to Temple President Richard Englert and College of Engineering Dean Keya Sadeghipour, with the team of more than 40 others who helped on their project.
The group has grown over the years and enters the competition with great confidence. They built most of the car on their own, using software and the machine shop here at the College of Engineering. TFR vice president Aaron Sndyer talked about the process before the reveal. “We don’t come in knowing about cars, but that’s not a prereq,” he said. “Being able to take what you learn in the classroom and apply it to real world engineering [is]. In Michigan, there’s 120 teams from around the world, doing the same thing. It’s a really cool environment.” Good luck Temple Formula Racing!
