Notice: Car Limits Enacted for 2016

In response to a growing number of teams, a car limit has been enacted for the 2016 competition. This consists of two parts:

  • An entry limit, limiting teams to three entries each.
  • A requirement that teams participate in both the 12 and 24 V races if they are using more than one entry.

Both requirements must be satisfied. Teams will indicate which entries they are using on the registration form. Teams are expected that they will notify the planning team in advance if their plans change.

What to Expect: 2016 EV Challenge

After reviewing the 2015 EV Challenge, the planning team has put forward several proposed changes for the 2016 competition. These are provided to competitors in advance of the official rules to help plan for the upcoming year.

These changes are tentative, and while the planning team intend to make all of them, some may be missed (and some new changes may come up after this). Teams should always review the official rules to ensure they have not missed anything.

2015 Results Posted

The results for the 2015 race have now been posted on our website. We have also posted graphs generated by the scoring software showing the progression of the cars over the race, and the best lap times of each car.

Bluevale Collegiate swept the race this year, taking both races and the Dennis Weishar Engineering Design Award. IE Weldon came a close runner-up in the 24 V race, being down only one lap (and leading Bluevale for a good portion of the race).
