Last Updated: 6/15/16 by Patrick Lewis

Notes: Steering system design lead ... I honestly can't remember what my official jobs were. I just spent every waking hour outside of class in the shop. Early in the spring of 2008 Patrick popped his head into the Baja shop after leaving an evening class for his MS and saw a group of inexperienced sophomores and freshmen building a car. He pointed out a few things to them, spent some time in the shop with them over the following few weeks, then Jill Morris asked Pat to help them drive the box truck to the 2008 competition hosted by TTU. He had a blast and has never stopped advising the club.

Notes: Baja at UR would not exist after 2007 if Dave hadn't rounded up a group of motivated sophomores and freshmen in the spring of 2008 to design, build, and race a car in about 3 months. He was a sophomore at the time, and the only one who had been to a competition. Dave served senior roles as Captain, President, and Chief Engineer from 2008 through his graduation in 2010.

Notes: Dave and other seniors designed the final reduction for the 2011 car as part of their senior design project. It used a purchased planetary gear set followed by a chain reduction. All shafts were mounted on bearing blocks bolted on support members welded to the frame. They learned never to do that again ... use a gear box! Apparently the current team thinks Dave No is a legend. - P. Lewis

Current Job/Position: Working at Factset, Inc

Last Contacted: January 2016

Last Updated:2/7/16 by Alycia Abbott

Notes:

Junior year, Professor Gracewski found Helen in the Hopeman lab (it was her first time in Hopeman, ever), and discovered she was a finance major. Since the team had been unable to find a Business Manager for the 2014-15 school year, Helen was immediately recruited to join the team. Helen serves as an excellent example of the benefit of having team members with business and finance skill sets on the team. Helen's work on the team Cost Report and Sales Presentation have laid a good foundation for future team success in these areas.
