The 2016 Formula Hybrid competition is underway at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Louden, NH! This year, 28 teams hailing from colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, India, and Turkey are registered for competition.
To help more teams run their cars in on-track events like Endurance, Autocross, and Acceleration, Formula Hybrid added an additional day of electrical tech inspection, and also pre-event electrical review three weeks before the competition’s start. The pre-event electrical reviews were conducted on site, at the competing team’s home institution by IEEE volunteers.
The additional day of electrical tech inspection was Sunday, May 1 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Today the Formula Hybrid teams, volunteers, and sponsors are stationed New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s two main garages focusing on electrical and technical inspections, and hiding from the steady rain. Luckily, the forecast for the remainder of the week looks more promising!
