Jayhawk Motorsports

Jayhawk Motorsports (JMS) is a collegiate design competition where students design, build, test, and race formula style racecars. Each year JMS builds two cars; one with a traditional combustion powertrain and the other with a fully electric system. Due to our small number of seniors, we are relying on volunteers to continue developing our electric powertrain in order to compete in 2020. This year we will be continuing development of our in-hub motors for the electric car. This is cutting edge technology that would put KU and Jayhawk Motorsports on the forefront of innovation in EV technology. The team this year has high hopes of perfecting previous designs and even installing a diffuser to increase downforce. Not only this, we will be creating a custom internal oil pump to potentially solve some issues we have had in the past. JMS has a very successful history in the formula SAE competition. In the last decade, Jayhawk Motorsports has achieved 7 top 5 finishes including two 1st place positions in the Lincoln competition. These events are very competitive and include teams from all over the world. This year we have lofty but achievable goals of winning top 5 in the Michigan competition and have hopes of placing top 2 in Lincoln.


            Every donation is critical in allowing students to develop technological advances in the FSAE sphere, and gives them a hands-on opportunity to apply the skills they learn in class. Jayhawk Motorsports is a unique organization as it includes students from all engineering majors as well as students from across the university. This year we have 45 members working on our team from aerospace engineering, computer science, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, accounting, finance, and marketing. Thank you for considering supporting our cause and helping students flourish in an active learning environment.
