Tiger Baja was able to compete in all three SAE Baja events, for the first time ever, in 2017! We were able to achieve this goal with much hard work, as well as incredible support from the University of Memphis – Herff College of Engineering, sponsors, and crowd funding initiatives.
I would like to take a moment to recognize some of our sponsors. We absolutely could not do what we do without them, and they are as follows:
OH Hendricks Sheet Metal
Ring Container Technologies
Tri-State Auto Paint & Supplies
QA1 Precision Products
With all of the support towards our program, we were able to finish as follows:
|Year||SAE Baja Event Location||Overall Result||4-Hour Endurance Race|
|2017||California – Gorman||52nd / 94||31st|
|2017||Kansas – Pittsburgh||88th / 107||63rd|
|2017||Illinois – Peoria||59th / 99||38th|
Our 2017 team has much to be proud of due to the fact that each of these results surpass the results of any single competition, other than that of Tennessee Tech in 2016.
We are constantly striving to improve our program, and we are so thankful for the opportunities that have been given to us!
