What  is  Baja  SAE ?

Baja SAE® consists of competitions that simulate real-world engineering design projects and their related challenges. Engineering students are tasked to design and build an off-road vehicle that will survive the severe punishment of rough terrain.  Each team's goal is to design and build a single-seat, all-terrain, sporting vehicle whose structure contains the driver. The vehicle is to be a prototype for a reliable, maintainable, ergonomic, and economic production vehicle which serves a recreational user market.

The object of the competition is to provide SAE student members with a challenging project that involves the design, planning and manufacturing tasks found when introducing a new product to the consumer industrial market. Teams compete against one another to have their design accepted for manufacture by a fictitious firm. Students must function as a team to not only design, build, test, promote, and race a vehicle within the limits of the rules, but also to generate financial support for their project and manage their educational priorities.

The inaugural Mini Baja event was held in 1976 and hosted by the University of South Carolina. This was the first competition in what would become SAE's Collegiate Design Series.


In 1978 Mini Baja was divided into three competitions: Mini Baja East, Midwest Mini Baja and Mini Baja West. The name of the series was changed to Baja SAE effective with the 2006 competitions. The three competitions are differentiated by adding the name of the host institution, city or state. 

In 2015  Mexico  became the fourth international event in North America.


All vehicles are powered by a ten-horsepower Intek Model 19 engine donated by Briggs & Stratton Corporation. For over fourty years, the generosity of Briggs & Stratton has enabled SAE to provide each team with a dependable engine free of charge. Use of the same engine by all the teams creates a more challenging engineering design test.

Engine price: The suggested list price for the Briggs & Stratton 10 Hp OHV Intek Model 19...L232-0054-G1 engine is $628.00
