We are the 2023 LTU Baja SAE team. We are a hardworking group of  Mechanical Engineering students utilizing this project as vital experience for our future careers. As a team, it is our goal to design and fabricate an off-road vehicle that we will then bring to our competition held in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in the spring.

In order to make this vehicle a possibility, we have to fundraise to cover both the cost of building our vehicle and the cost of traveling to and from competition. Any donation we receive from you goes towards making this opportunity a possibility for our team! Companies can also sponsor our team $1,000 or more to get their logo on our vehicle; a great way to get recognition at an international Baja SAE competition. Please know that all donations are 501c 100% tax deductible, and we appreciate your support of our team.

Meet the team:

Ashley Jordan- Team captain, powertrain engineer

Jack Lebar- Design lead, suspension engineer

Chad Booher- Fabrication lead, lead powertrain engineer

Katie Courneya- Lead suspension engineer

Evan Ossowski- Powertrain Engineer

Lauren Porter- Lead steering / braking engineer
