Eagle Motorsports

Georgia Southern’s race team, Eagle Motorsports, participates in the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Collegiate Design Series (CDS) competitions. The CDS competitions enable students to design, build, and test, the performance of a real vehicle. The competitions enable students to apply the theoretical knowledge gained in their coursework to a hands-on, team-based, engineering experience. Eagle Motorsports participates in SAE’s Formula (on-road) and Baja (off-road) competitions.

Baja SAE

Picture of Baja Vehicle

To compete in Baja SAE challenges, students must design and build an off-road vehicle capable of traversing rough terrain. Students must collaborate to resolve design, testing, and manufacturing technical challenges.

Formula SAE

Students must design, fabricate, and race a small formula-style race car to compete in Formula SAE challenges. Students compete in a series of static and dynamic events that evaluate the performance and endurance of their vehicles.
