Meet the makers and drivers behind the Hopkins Baja club
Who are we?
We are an undergraduate off-road racing team that competes in three annual international collegiate events, sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Each year we design, build, test, and drive a new, single seat, 4WD race car with a top speed of over 30 mph.
What do we do?
Our team members meet weekly and do lots of hands-on work! We also host drive days, in which everyone on the team gets to drive the cars, and social events to foster a sense of community around the program. We offer a wide variety of ways to be involved, spanning engineering work, business development, electronics and instrumentation, and professional skills. We also have an extensive, close-knit alumni network, and the team offers a great way to get practical experience sought by many employers.
