More than 20 teams bringing 50-plus cars from universities across the United States are scheduled to compete from 8 p.m. to midnight on a lighted dirt track at Podium1 Motoplex, 2921 Sunset Trail, in Charlestown, Ind. Spectator admission is $10, and the track opens at 2 p.m.
Teams will drive four-wheel, off-road vehicles called Baja SAE racers in the four-hour endurance race; the vehicle completing the most laps wins. Drivers can switch out when they need to refuel the student-designed vehicles, which use 10-horsepower stock engines and fuel tanks.
The UofL student chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) is host of the event. Four UofL teams, involving 20 Speed School of Engineering students, will race in Midnight Mayhem using vehicles from the 2010-2013 years of competition.
