InVestra Financial Sponsors University of North Florida Formula SAE Racing Team

InVestra Financial is proud to announce our sponsorship of UNF Formula SAE - Osprey Racing Team! These young students are a fine example of the future of the automotive racing industry!  


An excerpt from the Florida Times Union and Jacksonville.com 

— The University of North Florida’s Osprey Racing Team will hold a special test-and-tune of its single-seat Formula SAE SwoopD6 race car from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday at The Gauntlet, a permanent autocross facility in front of the former Sears store at the western end of Regency Square Mall, located at 9501 Arlington Expressway. UNF graduate Justin Tussey started Osprey Racing in 2010 so the university’s engineering students could compete in the Society of Automotive Engineers’ race car design competition. The latest SwoopD has an 85-horsepower Honda CBR600RR engine, its test-and-tune time at The Gauntlet paid for with a $5,000 donation from InVestra Financial Services CEO Erin Eiras. The car recently competed against 129 colleges from across the world in the annual Formula SAE competition at Michigan International Speedway, earning 48th place — its best finish.
