FORMULA RACING AT UC DAVIS
We are Formula Racing at UC Davis (FRUCD). Each year, we design, manufacture, and compete with a fully electric racecar from scratch. Our team is entirely student run --- all design, fabrication, planning, marketing, outreach, and racing is done by students. In the last in-person season, we placed 4th overall against top universities from around the world and hope to build on this strong performance. Our students leave the team with hands-on engineering experience with communicating, working in groups, and managing time effectively. Many of our alumni go off to make significant impacts in the world with their Formula Racing experiences.
ABOUT THE FUND
Your gifts will support FRUCD and its mission to engage student engineers, produce successful racecars, and support our community and environment. Specifically, we will use the funds generated from this crowdfunding effort to fuel our electric powertrain development. This year, we used the extra design time resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to research and develop a higher voltage battery pack equipped with Lithium-ion cylindrical cells. We are excited to see this project come to life by physically manufacturing it and gaining hands-on experience as soon as the pandemic is over. Through crowdfunding, we hope to ensure that money will not be an issue in providing our engineers with the fun and intricate manufacturing experience they deserve.
ABOUT YOUR DONATION
Your donation can be 100% tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Since we rely primarily on sponsorships and donations, your gift will ensure that we will have enough funds to purchase the supplies to produce a successful Formula Electric racecar and provide strong competition to the other top universities around the world.
