At­mos­phere will be elec­tric

Hills Gazette - - SPORT -

WUNDOWIE’S Hur­ri­cane Go Kart Club will host the EV Chal­lenge pow­ered by Syn­ergy to­mor­row, with lo­cal res­i­dents and schools jump­ing on board to build and race their own elec­tric ve­hi­cles.

The event is aimed at teams and asks them to de­velop small, sin­gle-seat elec­tric pro­to­type ve­hi­cles to cover as many laps of the cir­cuit in one hour as pos­si­ble from a lim­ited amount of elec­tri­cal en­ergy.

The ve­hi­cles must be be­tween 1.5m and 2.7m long and be pow­ered solely by an elec­tric mo­tor and bat­tery, and built within a re­stricted bud­get.

Syn­ergy chief ex­ec­u­tive Ja­son Wa­ters said he was pleased Syn­ergy was spon­sor­ing the event for the first time.

“We are thrilled to be the main spon­sor of the EV Chal­lenge and are proud of our ap­pren­tices and how they’ve demon­strated Syn­ergy’s core val­ues of in­no­va­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion in con­struct­ing their own pro­to­type EV,” he said.

The EV Chal­lenge will kick off to­mor­row from the Hur­ri­cane Go Kart Club.

Spec­ta­tors are wel­come to the free event, with food and drinks avail­able to pur­chase.
