2009 Electric Car Race Results

Speed, Maneuverability and Endurance races were held at the Becker H.S. field house track on May 16, 2009
  • Merit Awards: each team appoints one student to be on the Merit Award Committee. The students on this committee select an award to give to each car as a certificate that is presented to the team.
  • Drag Race: a side-by-side race, 3 heats followed by a final race for the 4 fastest cars.
  • Slalom Race: each car is timed as it zig-zags through cones that are 10 yards apart, makes a U-turn at the end, and zig-zags back to the start.
  • Endurance Race: teams try to complete the most laps in 45 minutes around the track, pulling into the pits and changing drivers on each lap.
