Smith College Gearing Up for the Grassroots Motorsports $2017 Challenge

The Grassroots Motorsports $2000 Challenge has hosted college-supported teams many times in the past, with the likes of Georgia Tech and Texas A&M being major players. In fact, we give out a trophy every year to the top-finishing college.

Now an all-female team from Smith College is joining in the fray. Their plans center around a Mazda Miata, a popular, proven platform. They also set up a GoFundMe page to help get them there.

New Standard Budget Sheets Introduced

We've seen budget sheets for the $2000 Challenge laid out in nice spreadsheets, in digital format and scribbled on napkins. To make the world a better place, we're introducing one standard budget sheet for all competitors to use when recording the costs that went into their build. This Excel document should make our budget auditing process quicker and help make the budget creation process easier for everyone. Download the standard Challenge budget sheet here.
