At Virginia Motorsports, our mission is to drive experiential learning and passion for motorsports through our Formula SAE and Baja SAE teams. We are a student-led group dedicated to nurturing the next generation of automotive engineers and enthusiasts. By fostering a hands-on environment, promoting innovation, and embracing teamwork, we aim to empower our members with the skills, knowledge, and practical experiences essential for success in the dynamic world of automotive engineering.
Sling they mud or asphalt, be they two-stroke or eight-cylinder, rusty or fresh off the assembly-line, we shall red-line them, break them, and repair them in the name of sport.
Lacy Hall is the headquarters for all Virginia Motorsports operations. Design for the Formula and Baja cars takes place in the team room, and nearly every component of the car from the suspension uprights to the electrical harness is fabricated at Lacy Hall.
The funding for Lacy Hall was generously provided by Linwood A Lacy, Jr. A chemical engineering graduate of 1967, Mr. Lacy saw the opportunity for growth in experiential learning near Central Grounds. His gifts allowed for the construction of Lacy Hall and the fruition of our dreams of mud, sweat, and steel.
