The Team

Knickerbocker Motorsports consists of a highly dedicated and motivated group of graduate and undergraduate students from the four undergraduate schools at Columbia University: the Engineering School, Columbia College, Barnard College, and the Graduate School of General Studies. Our team is incredibly diverse. Majors range from Mechanical Engineering to Music. Team members hail from Africa, Asia, Europe, and North and South America. Nevertheless, the team is one of the most cohesive groups on campus. Members can often be found doing homework and hanging out together. Strong and lasting friendships are formed that last long past graduation.
