Midnight Mayhem

The inaugural race for what would one day become the largest exhibition event worldwide for Baja SAE teams, Louisville Midnight Mayhem kicked off on November 8, 2008.  Sixteen cars representing twelve universities arrived at Podium 1 Motoplex just outside of Louisville, KY on a cold day to participate in the first ever night time endurance event for a Baja SAE vehicle.  Starting out on a saturated track, the early stages of the race were marked by cars struggling to climb some of the steep hills at Podium 1.  As the night went on, temperatures plummeted well below freezing resulting in a track that hardened up and became extremely fast.  After four hours, the top three teams were separated by just a handful of laps and the University of Louisville claimed the top spot followed closely by The Ohio State University and the University of Windsor!
