Thank You!

December 02, 2020

Thank you so much to everyone who supported us during this Catalyzer fundraising project! Without you, we wouldn’t have been able to get such a head start on the manufacturing of our car. This is an exciting time for the team, and we hope you will follow us on social media and stay updated as we build NFR21 and go off to Michigan!


Thanks again and go ’Cats!

50% Reached!

December 01, 2020

We’ve now exceeded 50% of our target funding, allowing us to cover more than half of our frame costs! Please help us push forward and fund our manufacturing cycle ahead of competition so that we can bring the best car possible to the track.

Our fundraising campaign is now fully open and in effect!

December 01, 2020

We’d like to thank everyone who’s already supported us. We’re already working to build up our stock with your gifts. Northwestern Formula Racing is a team of more than 70 students who design, build, test, and race a formula-style car every year. Your support through our Catalyzer crowdfunding campaign will help us get our first major purchases, such as the frame and material purchasing, underway. This early support will help our goal to make NFR21 our most competitive vehicle yet!

25% Reached!

November 30, 2020

We’re already at 25% of our goal!


With your gifts we’re already able to purchase an engine to power us through the year. Keep helping the team so that we can add on the rest of the components that will help us succeed at competition.


Thank you to everyone who has already gotten us this far!

Nuts and Bolts

Help us keep it all together.


Assembly / Senior Class Gift

From aluminum blanks and steel sheets, to brake lines and microcontrollers. Help us build and put a subcomponent on the car.



Get us rolling. Help us put a small part, like a new battery, in our car.



Help us connect the electronic components of our car.



Give us rubber to burn. A car without wheels is a hard sell. Help us put one on the car.



Help us manufacture a wing element.



Put your name on our car and push us toward the finish line by supplying us with an integral component like a new Yamaha R6 engine.


Carbon Fiber

Increase the size of your logo on our vehicle and help us get our carbon fiber to keep the car strong and light.



Send us a steel tube frame for 2021’s race car to hold all parts together and keep the driver safe. Also includes an invitation to all major team events, such as driving and testing days.
