Hybrid Car Competition Has Global Draw


Dartmouth’s 5th annual Formula Hybrid Competition will take place on May 1 to 4 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H. Founded and run by Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth, the event challenges teams of undergraduate and graduate engineering students to design and build, and then to race, high-performance, plug-in hybrid vehicles. Thirty three teams are registered and represent countries including Russia, China/Taiwan, Canada, and Sweden. Last year’s winner, Italy, plans to return in 2012.
