We are the Rebel Racing team at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Our team builds a baja off-roading vehicle and competes in three competitions a year. Competition season is quickly approaching, with the first competition taking place at the end of April in Baltimore, Maryland. Schools from around the globe compete in the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Competitions. We are proud to represent UNLV and Las Vegas while competing across the United States!
The current vehicle has reached its peak performance potential, meaning that it is time to begin building a new competition vehicle for the 2019 season. Building a new car takes months of hard work and dedication to complete. As college students we are often limited on time during the school semester, making summer the optimal time for us to begin building. We anticipate to begin the build phase in June, after our third and final competition is complete. The building of this vehicle will allow students to develop cutting edge automotive technology, while learning from industry experts to gain skills that far outreach the classroom setting. As previously stated, we travel across the country three times a year with a team, truck, and trailer. Travel expenses are a large financial responsibly for us. Due to this, we often do not have the finances needed for the costs of materials and parts for the building of a new car.
The funds raised from our Rebel Raiser will be used to purchase the required materials and parts for the building of our new Rebel Racing vehicle. We expect building to begin in mid-June 2018 and would love to post updates of our progress throughout the summer. In addition to these costs, the remaining funds raised will go towards travel/competition costs for the 2019 season.
We rely on donations and sponsorships to keep our team alive and competing. We ask you, as dedicated and passionate college students, if you'd consider donating to our cause. Thank you for taking the time to view our fundraising campaign, it is much appreciated!
