Team Leader Kevin Andersen accepts the Pit Award, a joke referencing our power brake issues

Welcome to the UVic Hybrid Team!

The summer and fall of 2014 have seen a number of important and exciting changes for our team. In June 2014, we attended the EcoCAR 2 Year 3 competition and placed 10th, being the top Canadian team! Despite some problems with our 12V systems, power brakes, and a poorly-timed engine failure, the team did very well across the board in its presentations to help recover significant points.

All this excitement over, we are now registered competitors in the 2015 Formula Hybrid Competition! The team has been at work since July to do research and design for the vehicle, and now we are right in the midst of the design phase. Wish us luck with this new venture, and expect regular updates with our progress as we have it!
