Electrathon America

Description: 

The goal of the Electrathon is to provide a spectator sport that will build public awareness of the capabilities and potential of efficient electric vehicles.

Developed around specific rules designed to keep costs down and competition high, these unique vehicles offer an opportunity and challenge to experiment, learn and compete.

Electrathon is a tremendous educational opportunity and a stimulating sport for schools with industrial arts curriculum combining physics, mathematics, electronics, auto technology and graphic design. It's a hobby for tinkerers and experimenters of any age.

The Electrathon format rewards strategy, skill and common sense, by limiting battery capacity and rewarding endurance.
