ESAB Welding & Cutting Products, Florence, S.C., is sponsoring the University of Toronto Baja Team in the Baja Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) collegiate design competition, conducted regionally throughout North America beginning June 2014 in Peoria, Ill. The company has donated welding equipment, consumables, and personal protection accessories to the team for its design and build of an off-road vehicle.
Every year more than 100 university teams participate in Baja SAE competitions across North America. In these competitions, SAE student members must function as a team to design, build, test, promote, and race a vehicle to meet specified dynamic elements, including acceleration, hill climb, maneuverability, suspension, traction, and endurance.
