our story

IN 2016,

we formed the SAE Baja team at NYU Tandon. At our inaugural competition, the car didn’t pass tech inspection and we couldn’t race. Our second year, after fully qualifying, we jumped from 57 to 383 overall competition points! Since then, we’ve come a long way. With expertise coming from a wide range of majors across our team, we’re better equipped than ever to take our car to the top. Our team has grown, too. This year, we’ve added an R&D wing to our team to ensure that we’re staying at the front of the pack for years to come.
