Formula SAE - Michigan: May 12-15, 2010
The annual premier event has always been held in Michigan...home of the automotive capital of the world! Michigan International Speedway will once again host the 2010 competition since it began doing so last year. For all that attended last year, it was definitely an experience being able to walk down the pits where some of the fastest racecars in the world have been! With over 120 teams from around the world (including Europe, Australia and Asia) this event is always the most exciting due to the diversity not only in the design of the cars, but among the team members that are present!

Formula SAE - California: June 16-19, 2010
This event, which is always the last "SAE" event of the year for North America, always includes the top ten teams from the previous years' Formula-Michigan event. Registration for the 80 teams has always filled up, literally, within minutes of opening. Luckily, our 2010 Blue Devil's registered in time and are aiming to attend this event for the second year in a row!  This race is held at Autoclub Speedway in Fontana, California which is within 60 miles of downtown LA and the famed Hollywood, California which should make for an exciting and eventful trip!
