The number is assigned by the organizers of the FSAE competition. The team includes students from all the schools. The body design incorporates the colors of the CU logo and is the work of Victor Franco A’19. Alumni were also invited to come see the FSAE event held in Brooklyn, MI 5/9 -5/17/17. The evening included poster presentation and a slide presentation given by Bridget Bissell EE’17, Mic Capone ME’17, and Harrison Milne ME’17.
On May 6th, the team began the trek to Michigan. The car was towed in a trailer to Brooklyn, MI where the week long competition is held. Multiple parents and alumni helped the team during this week. The Cooper Union Motorsports team finished 11th in the Business event, 37th in the Design event, and 49th in the Overall competition with more than 200 entrants. This was an historic top quartile finish for the team. They extend their heartfelt thanks to all alumni who gave them resources and advice in order to propel them to this result.
