Welcome to Northern Illinois University (NIU) Motorsports webpage.  NIU Motorsports is a group of undergraduate engineers that engineer, design, manufacture and race a Formula One style race car. We are a part of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).

NIU Motorsports team is a unique group of students determined to build a winning Formula SAE car. Being on the Formula SAE team provides members with an experience of more than just designing and building a car.  Members also gain knowledge in management, team work, marketing, cost analysis, communication and business. A lot of these skills are not developed in the regular classroom environment and that's what makes NIU Motor Sports team Special.

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) hosts a competition for students from 140 of the top universities worldwide to design, fabricate, and market a formula style racecar. This project requires participants to apply and improve upon principals learned in the classroom, and challenges their leader-ship, business and concurrent group skills. This intense, highly publicized event is overseen by Ford, General Motors, and Daimler Chrysler, enticing all who long to work in a field related to automobile engineering and racing. If you have a passion for speed and power, then you will definitely benefit from joining us or even by just reading the news and information you will find on our page. Feel free to contact us to learn about the upcoming events if you want to contribute and be a part of the team.

The competition tests the design of a student built formula race car in a series of dynamic and static tests, as well as cost, design, and marketing re-ports and presentations. Vehicles are judged at each event, requiring a solid all around performance for success.

We would like to invite all innovators and engineers from around the world to get in touch with us with your ideas. If you have developed something and need help to tweak it, we are happy to take a look too. Let's help each other and move forward.
