About Lancer Electric Racing

Lancer Electric Racing is California Baptist University’s Electric Formula SAE team within the Gordon and Jill Bourn’s College of Engineering. To accompany the recent push for electric vehicles, CBU has branched into the Formula SAE EV competition series. The Collegiate Design Series serves to support the transition of students into professional engineers that will tackle and overcome the engineering challenges of the future. Throughout the year long process, members are committed to the rigorous task of designing and fabricating a properly engineered vehicle that competes against other universities from around the world in events such as design, cost, manufacturability, performance, and reliability.

Lancer Electric Racing will partake in its second Formula SAE EV competition at Michigan International Speedway on June 13-17, 2023.
