The UofT Shootout

Since 2001, our team has hosted Canada’s largest student-run racing event – The UofT Shootout.  The U of T Shootout is an event dedicated to the Formula SAE and Formula Student racing series. With over 500 participating universities worldwide, Formula SAE challenges student teams to design, manufacture, and race an open-wheel, open-cockpit, combustion vehicle each year.

Held at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, this event attracts 21 Formula SAE teams for a full day of autocross racing. The UofT Shootout ends the season for North American teams as a final opportunity to showcase a year’s worth of hard work. Teams are rigorously evaluated at competition on the design, economics, and dynamic performance of their car and prizes are awarded to teams for both individual driver and cumulative team performance.


Mosport International Karting at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park has been the host of the UofT Shootout since 2005. The track has been praised for having a variety of technically challenging corners, being perfectly suited to FSAE racecars, and especially for its elevation changes. The track can support up to 20 cars in the pitlane and has ample paddock space and parking space for all teams.

The Mosport Kart Track has proven to be a terrific venue for an event of our size and still has room to increase our hospitality services at the event. The UofT Shootout organizers are very grateful for Mosport’s support of this event.
