Business And Operations Team
The business and operations team works to build a public image for Wisconsin Racing through social media, public relations and sponsorship acquisition, as well as maintain team organization and workflow. We are also responsible for competition items such as the cost report and the business presentation.
Team Members: Troy Sonnleitner
The electrical subteam is responsible for the design, manufacturing, and testing of all electronic components on the vehicle. In addition to managing the distribution of power to all components and sensors, the electrical team is also responsible for the acquisition and transmission of vehicle data.
Team Members: Rishi Patel, Nathan Husemoller, Jacob Hoeg, Cade Fink, Benedict Donnay, Omar Kurosu Jalil, Ethan Lim
From simulation to fabrication, the powertrain team designs, fabricates, and tests nearly all engine components and subsystems necessary to create a high performance powertrain package. We convert fuel to fun.
Team Members: Dylan Studden, Nate Guth, Louie Meysembourg, Ellie Pecore, Linnea Emerson, Dan O’Brien, John Brandt
The aerodynamics team for the combustion car collaborates closely with their electric equivalents. They are responsible for designing any aerodynamic elements as well as testing their efficiency through various software to optimize efficiency.
Team Members: Isaac Hewett, Shannon Egan, Paul McLean
The chassis team works to harness the power created by the powertrain team by putting it to the ground in the fastest and most efficient way possible. They are responsible for the hybrid monocoque frame, steering, suspension, and vehicle dynamics to make Wisconsin Racing vehicles some of the best handling in the world.
Team Members: Justin Paddock, Jack Tamar, Chris Nguyen, Tyler Radavich, Mickey Chudhabuddhi, Cody TeBeest, Alex Redman, Anastasia Bruss, Thea Kirkpatrick, Rishi Patel
The composites team is responsible for manufacturing any parts of the car that are carbon fiber, mainly the monocoque, bodywork, and the wings, as well as maintaining any other aerodynamic elements on the vehicle.
Team Members: Walker Silha, Danny Kamenecka, Anastasia Bruss, Lilly Cook, Amir Shulke, Dylan Zinkgraf, Nicola Mennella
