PCS Racing is an extracurricular team run by Purdue Catholic Students that uses skills learned in the classroom and applies them to real life mechanics and motorsport. This team collectively builds, assesses, develops, and improves a racing kart to compete in the annual Purdue Grand Prix. PCS Racing allows students to experience real world engineering as well as builds communication, prioritization, analysis, and troubleshooting skills that students will use throughout their lives. PCS Racing gives students a sense of belonging to the Purdue and St. Tom’s community as each member balances school, extracurricular activities, family, friends, and faith while participating on the team. We hope to continue our mission to constantly improve while creating a learning atmosphere for students to develop communication skills, teamwork, and faith. If you don’t mind getting down and dirty, have a passion to learn, and want to increase your involvement at St. Tom’s then this may be for you. No previous knowledge of engineering or motorsports is required.
