MUNDELEIN, Ill., March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MacLean-Fogg Component Solutions (MFCS) congratulates Kettering University for winning the internal combustion division of the 2014 Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Clean Snowmobile Challenge (CSC) held March 3-8 at Michigan Tech University's Keweenaw Research Center. This collegiate design competition challenges teams to reengineer an existing snowmobile to improve environmental performance. Modified snowmobiles then compete in a variety of events including emissions, noise, fuel economy/endurance, acceleration, handling, static display, cold start and design.
Professor Gregory W. Davis of Kettering University and SAE Clean Snowmobile Faculty Advisor, said, "I am proud of our clean snowmobile team members' effort. They finished in First Place overall; earned honors for the Quietest Snowmobile; won for the Most Practical Solution; and for Best Value." "We couldn't be happier with our first competition win," said Kettering team leader, Matt Birt.
The award for winning the internal combustion division at the 2014 Challenge includes Kettering University's name being etched in the MacLean-Fogg Cup, their possession of the Cup for one year and $1000 donated by MacLean-Fogg Component Solutions. The MacLean-Fogg Cup, artistically designed and sculpted by Sergio De Giusti, Italian born, Detroit-area artist, will be presented to the Kettering team at an on-campus ceremony March 18th.
