University of Toronto hosting Canada’s largest student auto race

Automotive enthusiasts are counting down the days to the return of the University of Toronto's largest student auto race in the country – The U of T Shootout.

With more than 400 engineering students expected to participate, the event will feature 21 Formula SAE teams that will compete in an auto racing challenge. Formula SAE is a collegiate design competition that was created by the Society of Automotive Engineers in 2001.

In addition to racing their creations, teams will be evaluated by a panel of automotive experts on their respective vehicles' design, economy and performance. The winning team will be awarded with a voucher that can go toward purchasing a set of high-quality tires. Additional cash prizes will be given out for other feats, such as best individual driver performance.

The U of T Shootout will be held at the Mosport International Raceway on Saturday, October 1, starting at 8 a.m. An awards ceremony will follow at approximately 5 p.m.

The engineers involved may want to consider renting out a storage unit for future competitions, as these can house the tools they need to build the best car possible.
