Event Description

The SUNYIT Baja SAE team, Wildcat Motorsports, will host its annual auto show on Saturday, April 26, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the Student Center Parking lot on the SUNYIT campus. The show will feature competitive events and individual vehicle classes with awards and prizes, plus music, food and displays. Registration, $10 per vehicle, will be from 10 a.m. until noon, with judging and events from noon till 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Each year, the SUNYIT SAE student team designs, builds, and tests a rugged off-road Baja vehicle, competing in regional and national competitions against colleges and universities from around the world. SUNYIT team members raise money through the auto show and other activities each year to fund their activities.

This year, team members have dedicated the event to the memory of Matthew Gorka, a SUNYIT student who died unexpectedly in February. Portions of the proceeds from the auto show will be donated to a trust fund that has been established for the education of his children.
