EV Power sponsored the "River Raiders" team this year in the Swan TAFE EV Challenge. This is an electrathon style of event where vehicles race for one hour around a winding circuit. At the end of the hour the numbers of laps are compared.
The team consisted of Rod Dilkes (electrics), Wayne Pragnell (body design) and Peter Fitchat (steering/suspension).
In all we entered three cars in two classes:
Electric Chair - Yuasa Class (No cost limit, SLA batteries provided)
Carbonnay - C Class (Open class, $1200 cost limit)
Hot Rod - C Class, Yuasa class
The results for our team were as follows:
C Class - 1st Hot Rod, 3rd Carbonnay (also engineering award)
Yuasa Class - 1st Electric Chair (also engineering award)
We wish to thank all the teams and the organizers of this great event. As all the teams well know 95% of the effort is in just getting to the start line! We hope to see it grow and promote the use of EVs in the future.
The cars used hub motors and brushless controllers. Batteries were LiFePO4 400Whr capacity, 4.2kg. The first three cars in the C class were powered by LiFePO4 battery packs supplied by EV Power, LiFePO4 batteries are our specialty.
