JULY 16, 2014
'University of Texas – Arlington (UT-Arlington) hosted the 14th annual “Texas Autocross Weekend” July 11 -13, 2014, under the direction of Dr. Bob Woods. The original intent was for Texas and Oklahoma schools to get together, but the eventhas grown to be a North Americanevent to observe cars in a more relaxed setting than the high pressure competitive FSAE race events atMichigan Speedway and Lincoln, Nebraska. There were 25 cars at the event, with over 50 drivers and 10 teams, University of Texas at Arlington, Texas A&M, University of Texas, University of New Mexico, Oklahoma State University, University of North Texas, Kansas University, Auburn University, University of Oklahoma, University of Windsor. On Friday, UTA opened its shop to the teams to tour itsArnold E. Petsche Center for Automotive Engineering showcase room, view afleet of 20 vehicles, and provide a quality upgraded automotive shop to teams to do any last minute repairs. Dave Schaller and the GoEngineer Texas team provided training to FSAE teams to help students be more successful in the design and analysis of their cars. Pizza and SolidWorks training go well together. Dave and GoEngineer have been supporting FSAE teams for over 10 years. I have seen Dave in the garage at Texas A&M and judging at Formula Hybrid in New Hampshire. He is a mentor to these teams and provides great insightinto the rules and the competition. Daveclosed the night out by giving SolidWorks backpacks to the FSAE teams. Thank you Dave and UTA for sharing with FSAE teams and the SolidWorks Community. Marie. Bio Twitter Latest Posts.
