The 2013 Formula Hybrid Competition finished with a windy awards ceremony at Victory Lane of New Hampshire motor speedway. The teams were all commended for their hard work, congratulated for their victories, including passing inspection, and for their innovation, craftsmanship, perseverance, and performance.
The endurance run was full of excitement. Yale demonstrated excellence and speed as their team’s hybrid whizzed around the track and completed the 22 kilometers without a problem. The all-electric UVM racer started out strong but due to a technical failure was knocked out of the race for over a half an hour. They still managed to finish the event. Dartmouth’s EV also experienced problems with the engine overheating, but after a brief stop they finished the race. Lawrence Tech, slow and steady, also completed the event.
