Off Road Riding


Harry Ambler ’17, a member of Lehigh’s revived Baja SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) team, maneuvers through a Rock Crawl event that was part of the Baja SAE Illinois competition in June. The team, which is composed of engineering and non-engineering students, designed and built its own car. Despite competing against teams from across the country with more experience and larger budgets, Lehigh Baja placed seventh in the Rock Crawl and 31st overall out of 99 teams in the competition, which was held at the Caterpillar Edwards Demonstration and Learning Center in Illinois. The team also competed in an event in Kansas, placing fifth overall out of 107 teams.
