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. This year our team is making huge strides by perfecting previous designs and installing active aero. This will allow for a more responsive and driver friendly car and allow us to continue to dominate the competition. This year we continue in our development of our electric car with in hub motors. This is cutting edge technology that would put KU and Jayhawk Motorsports on the forefront of innovation in EV technology. 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 winning number 1 in Lincoln in both combustion and electric classes.
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.
