Drive for Success
The University of Michigan-Dearborn Formula SAE racing team made a strong showing last month at the annual Toronto Shootout. The team placed fourth out of 17, beating teams from Cornell University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), among others. UM-Dearborn driver Trent Brown placed fifth out of 51 drivers.

The Shootout, a yearly racing competition hosted by the University of Toronto Formula SAE team, was comprised of a full day of autocrossing. Formula SAE is a student design competition organized by SAE International in which students design, manufacture, and build Formula-style race cars.
