McGill Racing Team withdraws from Formula SAE East 2014

Cherished friends, family, supporters, and sponsors, it is with deep regret that we must announce that we will be unable to compete at Formula SAE East this coming week.

Our team has been grappling with substantial manufacturing hurdles this season and unfortunately they have proved too great to overcome in time.

We cannot thank you all enough for your continued support, and we look forward to sharing our newest prototype, MRT16, with you soon. Needless to say, we are very proud of the hard work our team has put in this year and believe we have a great design on our hands.

Members of our team will still be attending FSAE-Michigan as spectators; we look forward to seeing you there!

BMRS: The Best Fit for MRT16!

A huge thank you goes out to Brown and Miller Racing Solutions  for providing us with custom brake lines and fittings for MRT16!
