Ontario Tech Racing is a club based out of the Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science at Ontario Tech University that empowers students with the enriching, hands-on learning experience of designing, budgeting, and building a Formula-style electric race car. We are a student design team that cultivates innovation and embraces the multidisciplinary challenges faced by professional motorsport teams.
We are dedicated to researching and developing the future of automotive propulsion technologies, with the backing of our faculty and sponsors. We place value and emphasis on teamwork and efficiency as well as the art of knowledge transfer here at Ontario Tech Racing.
Formula SAE is a student design competition organized by SAE International. The goal is for students to develop a small Formula-style racecar that is to be evaluated for its potential as a production item. The racecar has to adhere to the non-professional autocross weekend racer.
