Mad Hatter Garage

Mad Hatter Garage focuses on customizing vehicles with functional performance upgrades to make your automotive dreams come true, whether it’s off-road annihilation, dominance on the track, or just blowing the minds of everyone you pass on the street. This business has been side by side with Ragin Cajun Racing since 2015 and has given us knowledge and opportunities that have helped build the foundation for future generations of UL FSAE.


We would like the thank Chapman Consulting for being a dedicated sponsor of the Ragin Cajun Racing team! Chapman Counsulting is a full service oilfield Engineering and Project Management consulting firm ran by Mr. Randy Chapman. Their mission is to serve the Upstream & Midstream oil & gas markets, delivering efficient and cost effective solutions to their client’s maintenance, operational, and growth needs. The CCI team has been professional, easy to talk too, and nothing but helpful. When working with them you see the genuine passion and attention to detail for what they do. These are testaments not only to their business mottos, but their team as individuals.
