The 2017 Formula Hybrid competition is underway at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH! This year more than ever, “Formula Hybrid is SERIOUS about getting teams through electrical tech inspections,” says Doug Fraser, director of Formula Hybrid and senior research engineer at Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth:

RIT Hot Wheelz makes it onto the track

After facing some unexpected technical difficulties, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT Hot Wheelz) was able to reach — and exceed — their goal of completing at least one lap around the Endurance Event track. Their “unofficial” exhibition endurance run in fact totaled close to 20 laps. Congrats RIT!
