With the SCCA season over and our members back from their winter break, now is the perfect opportunity for test data analysis and subsystem refinement. Over the next few months, the team plans to make major modifications to the drivetrain, brakes, frame, and perform additional engine tuning to take on any competitor this Spring. Come challenge and support us this coming SCCA season!
Cooper Motorsports was formed in 1994 when Cooper Union students competed in the SAE Baja series. In 2004, an intrepid group of four mechanical engineering students started development of a racecar for the Formula SAE competition and a new team was born.
The competition requires students to design, build, test, and race a real race car. Since 2006, the team has built 4 open-cockpit formula-style race vehicles showcasing everything from mechanical design to electronic control systems.
Despite its limited resources, the team continues to thrive. Since its birth, the project has grown into an interdisciplinary effort between dozens of students of different majors within Cooper Union striving for excellence in every aspect of engineering design.
