CCS Alumnus Ralph Gilles, Matt Bejnarowicz, Gary Johnson and Mark West, Peter and Helen Farago Transportation Design Chair, accompanied students on a highly creative sponsored project kick-off at Kart to Kart Go Cart Racing in Sterling Heights, Michigan yesterday. The event was designed to excite Junior Transportation Design students about their charge to design a racing vehicle for year 2027 which fits one of Chrysler Groupâ??s four core brands. Students will consider technological, environmental, economic and cultural factors while incorporating a philosophy that projects 15 years into the future. The students began work on this project on January 11, 2012. They will conclude with a final presentation to Chrysler executives in April, 2012.
