IT TAKES A LOT TO BUILD A RACECAR

LET'S MEET THE RFR23 TEAM

RFR23 TEAM

Each year Rutgers Formula Racing fundraises, designs, builds, and races a new formula-style car. RFR is broken into 10 crossfunctional subteams each responsible for an assembly on the car.

This year is RFR's 34th year but will mark its debut as an electric formula team

EXECUTIVE BOARD

RFR's leaders, and problem solvers. Nothing gets past these guys. 
They oversee the entire operation from sponsors to finances, timelines, vehicle designs, and more.

CHASSIS

This is a very hands on subteam with a lot of theoretical frameworks. This subteam is responsible for designing and manufacturing the structural framework of the vehicle. One unique aspect of this sub-team is that you often get to work with all the subteams to incorporate each of their subsystems into the vehicle.

COMPOSITES & AERODYNAMICS

Though they are two separate subteams, composites and aerodynamics work very closely with one another. Aero utilizes theory and software to carefully create bodywork that increases the car's efficiency. Composites builds it using industry-leading materials such as carbon fiber and kevlar.
