Future Plans

The RR09 car is to be fixed up over the summer, for baseline testing in the fall to compare with the soon to be built RR10 car. Preliminary design for the RR10 car has been completed over the past year, and review and manufacturing is to begin in the fall as part of Carleton’s FSAE program.

If interested in volunteering for the RR10 team, please contact Eric Ghoukasian (ericghoukasian@hotmail.com)
