Drive Day with Oakland and Kettering

By Soizic Guillot

On Saturday October 4th, 2014, members of the Warrior Racing team participated in a test day at Oakland University's campus. We met up with two other teams, Kettering University Formula SAE and Oakland University Grizzlies Racing. This day was really informative and fun for all of us. Showing our car to the other team and seeing theirs, gave us a chance to share ideas, and talked about the different aspects of each car: from design, performance and manufacture.

Later in the day, we went out on the track and put each car to the test. Some of our members took the opportunity to drive Oakland University's car and after the 6 laps test drive, they were able to make comparisons with our own car.

By the end of the day, each team was able to assess all issues with their subsystems and on our side, we had a positive outcome. Only some minors fixes and a small change with the suspensions subsystem had to be made. The team really enjoyed socializing with The Kettering University Formula SAE team and Oakland University Grizzlies Racing and is ready for another event soon!
