Top Ten Finish at MTU Winter Baja
On February 20, the team traveled to Houghton, Michigan to compete in the Winter Baja Invitational. The event consisted of some 15 teams, 40 cars and four hours of endurance racing on an ice and snow track in the town of Lake Linden. State Baja racing made quite a showing, bringing four cars along with 15 members with two cars making it the entire race. The 2009 vehicle, "Willy," finished 14th despite a driveshaft issue that left the four-wheel-drive inoperative. One of our oldest cars, "Turtle", finished in 6th place, just a handful of laps behind the winner. Keep an eye out for updates as we near completion of the 2010 vehicle and begin the SAE competition series!
