Over the course of four days, the Formula SAE teams’ vehicles were judged in a series of static and dynamic events including: technical inspection, cost, presentation, and engineering design, solo performance trials, and high performance track endurance. The events were scored to determine how well the car performs. In each event, the manufacturing firm had specified minimum acceptable performance levels that are reflected in the scoring equations.
More than 100 teams from countries around the world, including Austria, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Mexico, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela and the United States, competed.
