About Us

Lafayette Motorsports is made up of collaborating senior Mechanical and Electrical Engineering students and is a Senior Capstone Design Project in Lafayette College’s Engineering Curriculum.


Our mission is to develop engineering and management skills while building the Lafayette Formula Electric Vehicle (LFEV) an electric racecar for the FSAE’s Formula Hybrid Competition. The design, fabrication, and budgeting of the car are all student lead, and emulate real-world experience by making students apply theoretical principles to real-world problems.
