Not Exactly Electrathon, But Still of Interest
The S.A.E.R.C. Girls Highland Thunder Electric Racing Team Page describes a group of Nova Scotia high school students (all female) and the electric racing car they built. (S.A.E.R.C. stands for Strait Area Education Resource Centre). The car is based on a Formula Ford 1600 Lola chassis - this is no model - it is a full-size, single-seater competitive race car powered by batteries! Way to go, ladies!
By the way, this team competed at the APS Electrics in Phoenix, AZ in March 1998 - AND WON!!
