SES Template Revisions 11/14/2018

Since announcing our last SES Templates update, we have received a number of rules inquiries addressing a few minor issues with the templates. We are happy to say those issues have been resolved and new document templates are posted online our Series Resources page.

For consistency and accuracy, all teams should submit their SES using the newest version available at the deadline. Not using the most up to date version will cause your team’s review to be delayed.

We truly appreciate the feedback we receive from teams as it helps ensure we deliver a better product for all our customers so please immediately report any broken calculations by submitting a rules inquiry at www.fsaeonline.com.
