War Eagle Motorsports (WEMS)


War Eagle Motorsports is Auburn's organization for international Formula SAE and Formula Student competitions. These competitions involve the high-level engineering design, from-scratch fabrication, and on-track racing of a new light, single-seat, autocross-style racecar every year. Auburn's combustion cars feature carbon composite structures, a full aerodynamics package, electronic powertrain control, and a lightened sportbike engine. They are capable of 1-g acceleration and 2-g cornering and braking. For 2019, WEMS is building a second racecar with an electric powertrain. Auburn holds the FSAE/FS class record for Acceleration, won the Lincoln Nebraska competition in 2016, and won four of the eight individual events in 2018.
