UBC Baja

Building the Legacy

Who We Are

UBC Baja is a student-run engineering design team focused on designing, building and racing an off-road vehicle. We compete annually against universities from across the globe in international SAE Collegiate Design racing competitions. This year we're excited to be attending competition in Pittsburgh, Kansas. Please check back regularly for status updates, as we work towards completing this years' vehicle in time for competition in May.


What is SAE Baja?

SAE Baja is an anual student design competition put on by the Society of Automative Engineers (SAE). The competition takes place over three days where each team's vehicle is judged on a series of static and dynamic events. The static events include cost and design presentations as well as vehicle inspection. The presentations are intended to test students' ability to justify their design choices and the feasibility of the design on a commercial market. Once passed inspection the vehicles compete in a hill climb, acceleration test, maneuverability test and a 4 hour endurance race.
