Washington Superbike Race for Success

In light of the effects of Covid-19 on our budding and ambitious student team, we are launching Race for Success, a final push to get the resources necessary for Washington Superbike to complete our first-ever custom-built motorcycle! The combined efforts of our talented roster of Computer Science, Foster, and Mechanical, Electrical, Computer, and Aerospace Engineering students have brought our team closer than ever to achieving our goal. Countless hours and late nights of focused research, intricate solid modeling, comprehensive design analysis, detailed design reviews, fierce debates, more design reviews, shop skill development, machining, scrapping, re-machining, wiring, cutting, rewiring, sponsorship outreach, university support coordination, more sponsorship outreach grant proposals, student engagement, more grant proposals, and unparalleled passion and dedication from my teammates have built this team from a crazy idea to a trailblazing reality. By donating to our team you are joining and supporting us not only in our goal to compete internationally but in our goal to create a lasting program here at the University of Washington that gives students the opportunity to learn skills and gain experiences they never would in the classroom, working side-by-side with peers who share their passion and dedication for creating something to be proud of.

Donations

We rely on your donations to keep our organization running: they’ll be used to fund the purchase of parts and equipment for our competition motorcycle that cannot be secured through direct sponsorship. Our dedicated Business Team works year-round to secure key sponsorships through targeted outreach, but miscellaneous items such as electrical connectors, mechanical fasteners, and other specific or non-standard components are difficult to acquire through traditional means. Monetary donations allow us to not only cover these smaller costs that add up but also take advantage of the discount sponsorships that make up a huge portion of our portfolio. Oftentimes, when a sponsor cannot provide us with a major component free of charge, they will offer us a sizable discount instead. A donation of any amount allows us to take full advantage of all sponsorships, and take our team that much closer to tightening the final bolts and achieving our goal of being the first from the United States to compete on the international stage!

Around 3% of donations do go to PayPal if paid through this portal, so mail-in checks made out to “Washington Superbike” are preferable to ensure 100% of donation reaches the team!



Checks can be mailed to:

University of Washington Department of

Electrical & Computer Engineering 185 Stevens Way Paul Allen Center – Room AE100R Campus
