Formula Student @ CU Boulder
Formula SAE (FSAE) is a student design competition endorsed by the Society of Automotive Engineers. Each year, students are challenged to design, build, and race a new race car while following a strict set of rules, encouraging students to create unique and innovative designs. There are over 400 University teams from 52 countries that come together in events around the world to prove that they have what it takes to produce a winning car.
CB1 is the first car built by the CU Boulder Racing Team’s Formula SAE division. Originally conceived in 2017, the car was supposed to compete at Formula SAE California in Fontana, California in the summer of 2020 but was cancelled due to COVID-19. After the event cancellation, CB1 was reborn as CB2, a continuation of the original project, to combat with potential vehicle problems. CB2 competed at Formula SAE California in the summer of 2021.
CB3 is an evolution of our CB1/2 platform, with driver ergonomic and control interface improvements. CB3 competed at FSAE Michigan in June 2022
CB4 is our most successful design cycle to date. This car is our first vehicle to ever pass technical inspection. It attended the 2023 Michigan FSAE IC event and placed 20th. This vehicle also hosted our first piece of carbon fiber crafted in-house.
