Wazzu "Racing" Their Way To Formula SAE

About Wazzu Racing

Wazzu Racing annually represents Washington State University at Formula SAE (FSAE); a collegiate design competition organized by the Society of Automotive Engineers. This competition is based on a formula racecar that students have the opportunity to design and build. By competing, students are challenged to apply classroom knowledge to real-world problems which, in turn, bolster their ability to communicate and work in teams. The program is made up of over 35 students from various majors and class standings. As such the leadership roles in the team further demand an ever-improving capacity to manage projects and cross-functional teams.

 Our Cause

This year, Wazzu Racing plans to compete at FSAE Michigan. However, the cost associated with travel, housing for our team, and transportation of the competition vehicle is beyond what we can currently afford. Donations will directly allow our team to showcase all of the hard work, dedication, and time we have spent designing and manufacturing our formula race car. Donate today and help Wazzu Racing get one step closer to Michigan in May!

What is Formula SAE?

The Formula SAE competitions challenge teams of university undergraduate and graduate students to conceive, design, fabricate, develop and compete with small, formula-style vehicles. The competition is an engineering education competition that requires performance demonstration of vehicles in a series of events, both off track and on track against the clock. Each competition gives teams the chance to demonstrate their creativity and engineering skills in comparison to teams from other universities around the world.

Teams are to assume that they work for an engineering firm that is designing, fabricating, testing, and demonstrating a prototype vehicle. The vehicle should have high performance and be sufficiently durable to successfully complete all the events at the Formula SAE competitions. Each student team design will be judged and evaluated against other competing designs in a series of Static and Dynamic events to determine the vehicle that best meets the design goals, profitably, build, and marketability. 

 The Formula SAE competitions are held in six locations worldwide, including two in the United States. We plan to compete in the Michigan Competition in May of 2022. 

Donate today and help Wazzu Racing get one step closer to competing in Michigan in May!

Choose a giving level


Meal for one!

This will cover the cost of a single meal for a student at the competition. We can't compete on an empty stomach!


Competition Shirts!

Part of going to competition is representing WSU and our sponsors, while also looking professional. This amount will cover the cost of a single competition shirt


Quarter Gas for Vans!

While at competition we will have to rent a van for transportation. This amount covers nearly 1/4 of the gas expense while at competition.


Night for One!

Cover the cost for a single student to stay a single night at a motel/hotel. The team should be staying approximately 5 nights


Flight to Competition!

This amount covers the round-trip cost for a student to fly to competition in Michigan.



In addition to members flying to competition, the car must also be driven/towed. This amount covers about a QUARTER of the cost of gas from Pullman to Michigan (one-way)


ECU (Electronic Control Unit)

Our ECU is pretty old and possibly fried. We could definitely use a new one; heat shrink and solder can only fix so much!


Single Tire!

Tires are one of the most expensive parts of the vehicle and we struggle to replace them every year. This would cover the cost of a single tire, giving us the traction we need to reach new heights.


Rental Van!

While at competition, we will have to rent vans for our team's transportation. This amount is set to cover the cost of renting a single van
