While most of the team is busy preparing Trev for Zero Race, Peter and Nick are about to head to Rio.
This year is the tenth Challenge Bibendum, an international event promoting sustainability mobility and demonstrating advanced prototype and production vehicles from around the world. Vehicle types include:
- electric assist bikes
- urban and intercity electric cars
- plug-in hybrid cars
- hybrid cars
- vehicles using alternative fuels.
Peter and Nick will also be on the Aurora solar car team, participating in the technical assessments and on-road rally; vehicles are assessed for local pollution, noise, fuel efficiency, CO2 emissions, acceleration and manoeuvrability.
We will post reports and photographs when we return. Meanwhile, Peter’s report from the 2006 Challenge Bibendum will give a taste of the event. (Trev appears in one of the photographs!)
