Lakehead's Formula SAE Team Receives International Coverage

Last year, Ryan Clark, one of the Project Managers of the Lakehead University Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) team, wrote an article about the ways by which Thunder Wolf Racing has overcome various obstacles and managed to succeed when so many other well-funded teams have failed.  The article was submitted to the prestigious SAE International Magazine, and not only was it printed, but the Lakehead team is also featured on the cover.  Now, SAE alumni around the world have a better appreciation of the LUFSAE team's dedicated team members and its success to date. 

All team members recognize the hard work of Dr. Sultan Siddiqui, Kailash Bhatia, and valued sponsors for the development of the team and its overall success. 

In the last two years, LUFSAE has completed all racing events, which is an achievement only half the competitors have been able to do.  In 2009, Lakehead's team placed 43rd internationally and won the William C. Mitchel's Rookie of the Year Award. In 2010, the team placed 39th internationally and 5th in Canada.  Approximately 120 teams (national and international) have competed in student SAE competitions over the past two years.   

Visit the LUFSAE website to learn more about the team or to donate.  To request a hard copy of the magazine, please email
