I would just like to thank the SCCA for inviting Purdue to the GUMOUT Collegiate Challenge at the Peru leg of Tire Rack SCCA National Tour this past Saturday. It was a great opportunity to not only race the GUMOUT VW Golf around the cones for free, but to also spend the day talking all things FSAE and coming away with new contacts and new ideas. The tour is wrapping up for the year, but I hope all teams will keep an eye out for the invite when the tour comes by them next year.
