Tech Finishes Sixth in Mini Baja
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Mini Baja team finished sixth in the 2001 Society of Automotive Engineers Mini Baja West competition held this past weekend in Manhattan, Kan.
Tech competed against 100 engineering design teams from colleges across the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The Tech teams returns to Rapid City Monday evening.
The Baja cars were judged on design, cost and safety. Teams gave presentations about their cars, and showed off their performance during hill climb, maneuverability and acceleration events. The Baja cars and drivers were also put to the test during the four- hour endurance race over the rugged terrain of the School Creek
Off- Road Vehicle Area of Milford Lake.
