What is Formula SAE?

Formula SAE, or, more commonly known as Formula Student (originally, this was the name of the FSAE-type competition held annually in the UK), is the biggest international engineering competition exclusively dedicated to students all around the world. Its roots go back to 1981, in the United States of America and it became international with the entry of the Universidad La Salle team from Mexico City in 1982.

Currently, FSAE competitions are hosted all over the world in the US, Europe, India, Asia and Australia.
