Formula Kentucky

Formula Kentucky is the University of Kentucky’s Formula SAE Team. We are a student operated organization whose goal is to engineer and fabricate a small formula style open-wheeled race car. Our current focus is on the manufacturing and testing of our latest car, FK04, which will compete at FSAE Michigan in May of 2022

We have a large engineering team, totaling more than 60 members within 5 different subsystems that focus on different aspects designing of the car. At competition we put our car through various trials including: acceleration, skidpad, autocross, and endurance. We also present our designs to industry experts for a scored review. In addition to the engineering aspect of the team we also have a business case presentation that is applied in our final competition score. We have a functioning business team that organizes competition logistics, plans team events, and obtains sponsorships.
