Formula SAE is a global collegiate design competition- the largest of it’s
kind-with the challenge being to create and sell an open wheel formula style
racecar. Over 300 schools participate worldwide, and the University of Arizona,
my school, is one of them. In addition to every aspect of engineering and
design, every aspect of running and managing a true race team is a vital part
of this competition. This includes the necessary ability to sell our racecar to
investors, who would then allow for it’s mass production. That means that some
idea of the market, and it’s needs is required. With this in mind, I ask that
you fill out my survey. It will help our team understand what market we are
selling this car to, and is a vital part of the sales component of our efforts.
I assure you that this data will only be used for the purposes of this survey,
and your name, email address, or personal information will not be divulged to
anyone. You will only be represented as a part of a group, never as an
individual. The survey is enclosed; thank you very much for your time.
You can return the survey to me by simply emailing me your answers at email@example.com
