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 Daniel Brock (819)997-1441 or Jacquie Manchevsky (819) 953-0084 for more information.
