Hey Everyone!!!,

Congratulations to the 2013 UNM Formula Society of Automotive Engineers team!  The 2013 team took the program to the highest level achieved by any team in the program’s 14-year
history. The team finished 12th in the international competition in Lincoln Nebraska, out of
80 registered entries from around the world.   Although the 2012 team finished in 10th place, the 2013 team scored the most points that UNM has ever scored. The UNM team finished 7th in design and 9th in marketing presentation. The 7th place finish in design was the best finish ever for a UNM team. The team also finished 14th in acceleration event, 17th in the skid pad
event, and 15th in the autocross event. Completing the 22-lap endurance run in 12th
place assured the team a high finish.
