All-female team tops field at South African Baja event
History was made at the Oct. 15-16 Sasol Baja SAE event, when, for the first time in the 15 years of the event, an all-female team from the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) claimed the overall title. Sasol Baja SAE, South Africa’s premier inter-university engineering competition, took place at the Gerotek Testing facilities, just outside Pretoria. Organized by the Pretoria University, this year’s event featured 19 teams, coming from Venezuela, Iran, India, and South Africa. In the grueling 4-h-long endurance race on an exceptionally rough, dusty, and difficult, nearly 2-km dirt course, the TUT team , consisting of only two women—Katlego Nkoana and Maureen Ramaube—held down seventh position for most of the race until a perfectly timed charge saw Ramaube pass six cars in the final five laps. At the end of the race, the TUT team crossed the finish line just one lap behind the race winners, the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, claiming a runner-up finish in

the endurance race and the overall title for the event. When asked for their reactions following the victory, from behind her helmet, Ramaube summed up her emotions in one word, “Overwhelmed!” Nkoana, wiping away tears, said: “We can’t believe it! We have worked every night and every weekend for a year on our car. Look what we have done!” The University of the Witwatersrand and the Cape Peninsula University of Technology held first and second place, respectively, until the dying laps of the race, when mechanical problems slowed the University of the Witwatersrand. A fellow team from TUT (car No. 6) led after Friday’s non-circuit evaluations but suffered a setback Saturday when officials deemed that the team received outside assistance fixing a technical problem on the car while on the circuit. The 10-min penalty dropped the team to 13th place. But a push for the rest of the race,
The SAE Foundation and the SAE Foundation Canada thank our individual and section contributors* for their generous support in fostering the advancement of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, inspiring today’s students to become tomorrow’s science and technology leaders.
Your support helps the SAE Foundation achieve its mission in a number of ways. We can allocate additional resources to fundraising and strategic partnerships, such as summer academies and after-school programming, that reach more students outside of our traditional in-classroom A World In Motion® usage. It also enables us to create new Collegiate Design Series events, which are always in demand and ﬁlled to capacity registration. Overall, it is an investment in our STEM education mission to encourage and support more students in their STEM studies.
