Terps Racing vehicles are featured as one of the ‘Hot Displays’ of the convention, located at the Washington Convention Center at 801 Mount Vernon Place, N.W. in Washington, DC. Maryland is the only D.C. Metropolitan area university-sponsored racing team or club at the auto show.
Admission is $10 per day per person. Racing team members will be present in the motorsports section to talk with other students interested in becoming a part of Terps Racing competitions and events.

Terps Racing offers Maryland undergraduate students the opportunity to design, build and race their own baja all-terrain and formula racing vehicles in various regional and national competitions. Terps racing invites students of any major to participate, although most are engineering students.
