BOZEMAN – The “Bobcat Motorsports” team recently returned from Lincoln, Neb., where it was one of 80 teams from seven countries competing in the four-day Formula SAE competition.
The Montana State University team placed 30th overall. It scored points in all events and was one of only 27 teams to complete the endurance part of the competition.
Dozens of MSU students designed, fabricated and tested the car that was this year’s entry, said faculty adviser Robb Larson from the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering.
Eight travel team members hauled the car and supporting materials 1,000 miles to Lincoln for the multi-event competition. Those team members were Adam Bartie, mechanical engineering; Brandon Bickel, mechanical engineering technology; Dillon McClure, mechanical engineering; Dustin Dettwiler, mechanical engineering technology; Cole Story, business marketing; Ted Golleher, mechanical engineering technology; Ryan Mallory, mechanical engineering; and James Willich, mechanical engineering technology.
MSU’s car is temporarily on display in the atrium of MSU’s EPS Building.
