What is UCD Formula Racing?

UC Davis Formula Racing is a student design team that is challenged to design, build, and race high-performance, environmentally-conscious vehicles. The group is composed of 25 extremely dedicated UC Davis mechanical and electrical engineering students. UCD Formula Racing is united by a mutual interest in preserving high performance characteristics while pushing the envelop with regards to reducing environmental impacts.


The reinvented Formula Racing group builds on 4 years of successful competition in the Formula Hybrid series with a brand new design and vision for an all electric race car competing in SAE’s Formula Electric competition. The group will continue to provide engineering students with vital hands-on skills and experience. The group also intends to produce next-generation engineers with experience in designing vehicles for the future.
