Founded in 2010 the SAE Saluki Baja chapter proudly represents the college of engineering at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Our team designs, builds, tests, and races a new mini-baja car each year. The racing is done at sanctioned Society of Automotive Engineer tournaments. These tournaments involve four dynamic events (acceleration, maneuverability, sled-pull, and suspension) and a grueling four hour endurance race that is built to push our baja to its limits. This year we will have our competitions Pittsburg, Kansas and Peoria, Illinois.
