Middle and high school teams from across Wisconsin will bring their concept vehicles to the college to measure efficiency, based on design criteria. The event is divided into two sections, supermileage (petroleum fuel) and electrathon (electric) powered cars. Each section is comprised of several classes. The supermileage cars will make at least three seven-lap ‘runs’ on the track and average them for a result. The electrathon cars will have three one-hour heats to see what car can go the furthest on a battery charge.
No admission fee, bring your friends!
