Visiting Larsen Motorsports Headquarters
When the (LMS) jet dragster racing teams aren't representing Florida Tech at national racing events and exhibitions across the U.S., they can be found working in their high-tech headquarters inside the university's Center for Advanced Manufacturing and Innovative Design. Located just down the road from campus, the Larsen Motorsports High Performance Vehicles Research & Development Center is where the Larsens teach and train Florida Tech students to engineer and fabricate jet-powered dragsters and related technologies.
Your family is welcome to visit and take a tour of LMS, either as part of a Florida Tech Daily Visit or on your own.
Larsen Motorsports tour elements vary depending on availability of certain staff members and race schedules. A typical tour includes a historical overview of Larsen Motorsports, viewing of lab and fabrication areas, up-close look at the cars (including the Florida Tech jet dragster!) and chats with Florida Tech interns, LMS staff and the owners, Elaine and Chris Larsen.
