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!!
For those between the ages of 16 and 24 in Canada, interested
in Electrathon or EVs for their environmental advantages, you may
also be interested in the Northern Star Youth Award - administered
by Environment Canada, the award recognizes 12 young people
annually who have achieved environmental successes in one or more
of five categories: public policy, community service, science and
technology, communications and creativity, and environmental
entrepreneurs. The deadline for submissions is October 30. Contact
