It’s a New Season

Posted by Dan Riggs On August - 6 - 2013

The 2012-2013 season has finally come to an end! The MSU Formula Racing Team finished 10th place overall at Formula North and 23rd overall at FSAE Nebraska. At FSAE-Nebraska, we were well on our way to a top 5 finish (2nd in acceleration, 5th in autocross, and 7th in skidpad) until we had a minor starter motor failure at driver change during endurance. We were about 30 seconds late getting back to the start line, but were given the green flag. After one lap, the second driver was flagged in and we were disqualified for not completing the driver change within the allotted time.

It’s a new beginning for the team and we are looking to improve on both our successes and failures from this past year. The 2013-2014 season will prove to be a challenging and exciting year that we look forward to taking on. We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their support this past year and we look forward to working with you on Car 9!
