Just a teaser picture of our work-in-progress.

MRT-14: Step 1.

Frame construction complete!

A special thanks goes out to everyone at Aviron Technical institute for being such a large help in the construction of our frame. A special thanks to Jon and Kyle! The MRT14 frame was picked up today and the team is enthusiastic.

Almost Showtime

With FSAE Michigan less than a week away, the McGill Racing Team has been working hard to finalize all unfinished touches and maximize track testing time.

Production Update



Machining is more or less finished, almost all part orders have arrived, and production continues at a brisk pace.

Production Update

Thanks once again to the help and hard work of the students over at our sponor, Aviron Technical Institute, our frame has been welded and ready to go since early December.

Technical drawings have been finalized and sent out, and parts are coming in every day; we expect a busy and productive month.

Anodized Parts Are In!

Verdun Anodizing

Thank you to our long-standing gold sponsor Verdun Anodizing for the anodization of many aluminum components of our vehicle: upright, fuel tank, differential, etc. This aesthetic and protective surface finish gives year after year a professional look to our car as well as helping with its durability.

Frame is Completed with the Help of AS Composite

AS Composite

After a few days of work on properly sealing the vacuum bags, the carbon fiber side impact panels and the front bulkhead were successfully attached to the steel frame with the help of AS Composite‘s staff and large oven. The results is a 19% lighter frame than the previous year with a 30% gain in stiffness!
