2016 has arrived in full force. Front and center on our plate right now are two annual events that attempt to showcase what we do.
Blizzard Baja 2016
Every year, Michigan Tech hosts dozens of teams for a bitterly cold Saturday snow race. The day is filled with shivering, pickled eggs, and winter driving adventures meant to bring teams together, make connections with other schools, and prepare for a competition mentality.
This year’s race saw the UIC Motorsports baja team take the checkered flag in 1st place. A race that was tight all the way until the end, with the top 5 cars separated by only a couple of laps. Team captain Chris Dwyer and drivetrain lead Matt Johnson adapted quickly to the course and even turned in the fasted lap of the day by almost a 3 second margin.
The team looks poised and ready to push the new 2016 competition car to a strong finish in both the April Tennessee Tech and June Rochester competitions.

2016 Chicago Auto Show
Another annual event for us, the Chicago Auto Show, has us front and center in the public eye. As the largest auto show in North America, we are generously granted the opportunity to showcase to crowds that top 1 million people every year. Our booth sits right by Maserati, Lexus and Audi. So come check us out!
