Support Longhorn Racing (LHR)!

We are Longhorn Racing!

The Longhorn Racing family at The University of Texas at Austin is reaching out to you for support during our 2023-2024 build cycle, and beyond. In 1980, our organization started the first Formula SAE collegiate design competition. Today, Longhorn Racing is the largest technical student organization on the Forty Acres, dedicated to graduating strong and skilled students through their experiences with our three vehicle design teams and six operations committees. Through LHR, our students have opportunities to learn hands-on skills in engineering, design, manufacturing, and validation, as well as develop important soft skills for their future careers such as leadership, teamwork, planning, initiative, and independence.

Our Three Teams

Combustion: Since 1981, our team has enabled students of all backgrounds to succeed and grow in their skill sets. With every build, we emphasize the design, manufacturing, and validation processes. This focus helps us gain both technical and professional experience and ensures that we improve year after year.

Electric: Our young team is fueled by a culture of education, sustainability, and innovation. Our students have a front row seat to the electric vehicle revolution, gaining hands on experience with electrical components. We are also committed to learning and passing on that knowledge as the team continues to grow.


Solar: We are a multidisciplinary team striving to build the fastest, most efficient solar powered vehicle. Since 1989, we have conquered real-world problems, challenging students in areas such as energy management, aerodynamics, and high-tech material fabrication. Our focus on renewable energy makes our team one of the greenest on campus.

We need your support!

Nearly all of Longhorn Racing’s budget comes from corporate supporters and individual donors.  This means that for us to properly design, create, and compete with three new vehicles at our full potential every year, we need your help!  With your support, LHR can continue to grow and become a space for students to explore their creativity and be a part of a unique team.
