WE WON! We have to thank everyone who voted for us for the people's choice awards and all the fans for cheering for us during our run. We had an awesome time out at Red Rocks and we couldn't be happier with our results. According to the Red Bull People we are the first team to ever win both the People's choice and the 1st place trophies!!
Welcome to TeamSaveFerris.com. We are a team of 5 who are competing in the Red Bull Soap Box race in Denver Colorado at RedRocks on October 25th. Our teams inspiration is the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and we have been spending endless hours recreating the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder that was featured in that film.
We are a group of overachievers. Students, professionals but most importantly people who enjoy learning how to make things. We all come with our own unique backgrounds and skill sets but together we are able to make just about anything. Our goal is to create a car we can be proud of, something that we can take to the competition and say, “Yes, we built that” and know that people are going to be impressed. We build because we love to create and our vehicle is 100% hand crafted. Our chassis is a completely original design and performs better than the real Ferrari, well, that is assuming you are not looking at acceleration…
This experience has been great for us. We have all found a certain balance working together, each person seems to take over in places they excel and the project keeps moving forward full steam. This car has cost us money, but mostly it has cost us time. Our budget is surprisingly low for such a custom car, but our hours are high. In the end we will have well over 600 hours into this vehicle between the 5 of us but even with the lack of sleep and the insane amount of labor we look forward to getting to the shop each day to move forward with our project.
So welcome to our site, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions and we will continue to update our Build Process section as the car comes to completion.
