Ford Encourages Motorsports Innovation
Ford Motor Co. provided financial support to the Duke University Motorsports club. This is a team of undergraduate students that design, fabricate and race an open-wheeled Formula SAE Series car in the Formula SAE competition in Detroit, Mich., as well as in several autocrosses across the state of North Carolina. The team also participates in community outreach programs. Ford support pays for supplies, insurance and travel to the national competition.
