College Kids Built This Amazing Old Racecar

We've all heard of Formula SAE, the racecar training ground for tomorrow's great automotive engineers. Did you know they still race their retired FSAE cars?

Formula SAE vintage days

I'd imagine there are a lot of you out here who participated in some form in the Formula SAE series while in college. Thought some of you might appreciate what a group of alumni is doing with the old cars down in Cincinnati. There is a small group that restores, autocrosses, and hot laps a fairly large number of retired FSAE cars. They've currently got 8 cars, I believe, with essentially 6 of them in running condition. I was fortunate enough, as an alum, to get invited down to join them in hot lapping the local kart track, G and J Kartway, in Camden, OH.

After being out of one of these for so long it had to remember how tough these things were to drive. Being on the limit in any of these old cars is no easy task. Who else still runs these things on the regular?
