About Us
Stony Brook Motorsports, previously known as Mini Baja, has been at stonybrook for over 15 years. Each year the team of students works together to design, fabricate and test a mini baja vehicle and then takes that vehicle to competition. In the past 3 years Stony Brook has consistently been in the top 5 teams at national competitions where we compete against over 120 other teams. Baja SAE consists of three regional competitions that simulate real-world engineering design projects and their related challenges. Engineering students are tasked to design and build an off - road vehicle that will survive the severe punishment of rough terrain and in the East competition - water. The competition originated in 1976 at the University of South Carolina.
The object of the competition is to provide SAE student members with a challenging project that involves the planning and manufacturing tasks found when introducing a new product to the consumer industrial market. Teams compete against one another to have their design accepted for manufacture by a fictitious firm. Students must function as a team to not only design, build, test, promote, and race a vehicle within the limits of the rules, but also to generate financial support for their project and manage their educational priorities.
All vehicles are powered by a 10 HP Intek Model 20 engine donated by Briggs & Stratton Corporation. For over 25 years, the generosity of Briggs & Stratton has enabled SAE to provide each team with a dependable engine free of charge. Use of the same engine by all the teams creates a more challenging engineering design test.

The Stony Brook Baja team has been steadily growing in membership, this year’s team seeing the most student involvement in the history of our school. We are highly motivated and the high involvement level will surely result in an amazing vehicle and a great learning experience for everyone.
