Society of Automotive Engineers Baja Team Participates in MTU Blizzard Baja

The UI Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Iowa Baja team traveled February 16-19 to Houghton, MI, to compete at MTU Blizzard Baja, a competition on a track carved in snow on the campus of Michigan Technical University.

Blizzard Baja is a unique race due to its location in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. With an average snowfall of over 18 feet, the freezing terrain is a grueling test for the vehicles and members of each Baja team. Since 1981, Blizzard Baja has grown to a race where more than 20 universities compete with over 50 vehicles.
