Carnegie Mellon Engineering Students To Participate In Second Annual Caliguiri Collegiate Cup Race

PITTSBURGH — Carnegie Mellon University students will test their design prowess and driving skills in the second annual Caliguiri Collegiate Cup Race at this year's Vintage Grand Prix at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, July 17, in Schenley Park.

Carnegie Mellon's student-built FormulaSAE class autocross vehicle will compete against teams from the University of Pittsburgh and The Pennsylvania State University in a collegiate race designed to test driving expertise, vehicle performance and engineering design. Teams will compete in a motorcross slalom race in front of Phipps Conservatory and then a speed run later in the day.

The collegiate race commemorates the late Mayor Richard Caliguiri, who helped start the Vintage Grand Prix event, held for the past 27 years in Pittsburgh.

Carnegie Mellon team members include Christopher D'Eramo, Scott Israel, Drew Heutchy, Alex Long, Daniel Frey and Serge Gregory. Team coordinator is John Wiss, an adjunct professor in mechanical engineering.

WHEN: 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, July 17.
WHERE: Schenley Park, in front of Phipps Conservatory.
