WARRENDALE, Pa. (October 20th, 2022) – SAE International and Kohler are pleased to announce that they have entered into an agreement to feature Kohler Engines as the exclusive engine supplier for the 2023-2026 Baja SAE Series competition seasons.
Baja SAE challenges teams of college engineering students to design and build a prototype of an all-weather, rugged, single-seat, off-road recreational vehicle that will survive the severe punishment of rough terrain. These student teams work together to discover and resolve technical challenges in designing, manufacturing, and testing their vehicle, while managing real-life business issues, demands and priorities.
Kohler Engines will provide its Command Pro® CH440 engine at a discounted price to all Baja SAE Teams, as well as CAD drawings and 3D shell models. In addition, engineers, marketing, sales, and HR from Kohler Engines will be on site during competitions to support teams and the event, as well as participate in the technical engine check process and recruiting activities.
“We are so excited about working with SAE. Kohler has been providing power solutions for more than 100 years, and we are very proud to support future engineers who have so much passion to run in these competitions” said Dale Snyder, Vice President of Gasoline Engineering at Kohler Engines.
“We are excited to welcome Kohler to play an integral part in the Baja SAE Competition Series,” said Kaley Zundel, Baja SAE Program Manager. “We look forward to the upcoming season to see the vehicles these student teams develop using this new technology”. Registration for the 2022-23 Baja SAE season is currently open. To learn more about BAJA SAE, visit Bajasae.net.
