Shell Eco-marathon Americas 2012

We regret to inform that team Mile Highdrogen did not have a good outing at the Eco-Marathon competition this year. The team flew by technical and safety inspections with no issues and had perfect practice runs on Friday for the driver to get comfortable with the track. Saturday came and the vehicle came down with problems that were really out of our hands.

Saturday was spent rebuilding an electric motor and Sunday provided a last glimpse of hope for the team that came to no avail. 

We would like to congratulate all of our competitors and are grateful for everyone that we got to meet at the competition. We would never have thought that teams from all over the western hemisphere would lend a hand in helping us get our vehicle back on the track.
