The Baja SAE competition is made up of both static and dynamic events. The static portion of the competition is composed of design, sales, and cost presentations. In the design presentation the team presents the design, validation, and testing of the vehicle to judges. The goal of the sales presentation is to “sell” the design of the vehicle to a company for production. The cost presentation is an audit of the cost of one subsystem. 

The dynamic events include suspension, maneuverability, acceleration, sled pull or hill climb, and a head to head endurance competition. The suspension event is a rigorous course designed to test the ability of the vehicles suspension. The maneuverability event is a small track with tight turns that teams must complete in as little time as possible while hitting as few cones as possible. The acceleration event test the vehicle's ability to accelerate from a dead stop over a set distance of either 100 or 150 feet.  The sled pull or hill climb is designed to test the vehicle's ability to either pull a sled of increasing weight as far as possible or drive up a steep hill as far as possible. 

The endurance event is a four hour head to head competition where each team attempts to complete as many laps as possible in the time frame.
