Here's how it works:
In our category (Battery-Electric):
Each run consists of several laps around the track. With this year's track being .6 mi long, our driver will needed to complete 10 laps.
The track changes periodically; previously the track was in downtown Houston. It is now in Detroit. Motor city here we come!
Our Team: Has to pass a safety course
Our Driver: Has to pass a skills course
Our Car: Has to pass a technical inspection
While our ultimate score is only dependent on our performance in the competition,
there are several off-the-track awards for the teams who best meet the requirements above.
Shell and Duke Electric Vehicles both strive to maintain a safe working environment, which means a goal of ZERO accidents or safety incidents. With the proper training, safety equipment, and sense of responsibility, we can all achieve Goal Zero.
