The Presentation
Auto racing is an intense crucible that tests a vehicle's and driver’s capabilities, but even more so when racing on a low friction surface, like ICE. This presentation will focus on driving techniques used in ice racing and performance driving.  While it may be slower, it's no less exciting!  We will cover the similarities and differences compared to driving on high-grip surfaces.
The Race

After the presentation, we will apply the lessons in a one-hour Le Mans-style kart race at Speedworld! Teams assigned to each kart will race against each other to complete as many laps as possible before time runs out!

Teams will be a mix of SAE students, professional SAE members, and other guests. This is a great networking opportunity for students and professionals alike!

Our Speaker

Corey Dyck is a Mechanical Engineering graduate of the U of Manitoba. While working in the heavy-duty transit industry, he's pursued amateur motorsports as a passion for 19 years now. Corey has won a few Canadian National Championships and has placed in the top 10 in US National competitions in his chosen sport of autocross. He's created, refined, and instructed at a local autocross racing school that has helped hundreds of drivers reach their personal goals in amateur motorsports over the past 17 years. 

Student Recognition

SAE Manitoba would like to recognize the world-class UMSAE student organization here in Manitoba. Together, they form one of the largest student member groups in the world. This event celebrates their participation in SAE, their contribution to the industry, and their role in the development of the engineering function in society, and gives them a networking opportunity with professional SAE MB members. It also gives the professional members a chance to show their support for the students by contributing to this event.
