Performance Contractors, proud sponsor of the LSU Tiger Racing Team

The Tiger Racing team is made up of students in LSU’s Mechanical Engineering department, assisted by students in other disciplines, who build a race car from scratch to compete each year in the Formula SAE® Design Series race car competition in Michigan. This year's competition was May 8th through 11th, 2013. 

Blazing speed, careful precision and impeccable design are all elements to consider when designing a race car, and nobody knows this better than Tiger Racing, the University’s own group of students who build race cars from the ground up. 

The LSU Formula Student Automotive Engineering Club created Tiger Racing to compete in the Formula SAE Collegiate Design Series at the Michigan International Speedway this May. The competition features about 120 universities from around the world, all competing in various areas that test car designs, concepts and students’ understanding of the engineering behind their project.
