The Johns Hopkins Baja SAE team returned to the Homewood campus April 24, tired, muddy and thrilled with its showing in the intercollegiate competition in Auburn, Ala. The day before, the engineering undergraduates, led by senior Matt Blake, placed ninth overall (out of 102 teams) and third in the Design Report and Maneuverability categories—the best results ever for JHU in this international contest. The team designed and built the 10-horsepower buggy (shown here in the competition), which is equipped to race across rough terrain, catch air and chug through deep water.
