took a group of ten students to new hampshire this week for the formula hybrid competition. 28 teams running up to 250 cc motored and unlimited battery / electric power. we placed 5th and were pretty much underdogs compared to some of the fine cars there. students were stoked and everyone had a great time.

our car arrives from CA

tech inspection, failed but fixed everything that was wrong by midnight of the first day...

One of the primary goals of the competition is education. This year's competition that was held in the Brand new Hampshire town of Loudon, was set apart by the truth that all the cars were student-designed and built, and the judges were employers from main car manufacturers, trying to find brand new talent.
