Temple Formula Racing finished 29th overall and 17th in the endurance event out of about 100 teams at the recent Formula SAE competition in Brooklyn, Michigan. This represented the best overall result in the team's history, thanks to some key changes.
The students designed a car with a smaller 10-inch wheel package in 2021 compared to the previous 13-inch wheel, and this year they shrunk its track width by 10 inches and its wheelbase to the minimum length.
The team also pursued a renewed emphasis on inclusion, welcoming mechanical engineering major Lillian McEachen as the first female driver in team history.
