Three Mahurangi College students picked up two awards for their electric vehicle ‘Passing Gas’ at the Evolocity Nationals last month.
The ‘Passing Gas’ team comprised Daniel Foote, Jackson Crawford and Jordan Heron.
The team qualified for the event, held in Christchurch on November 24, after becoming the overall winners of the Auckland regional final.
They raced a three-wheeled carbon fibre go-kart and won the Team and Vehicle Show Award and Best in Report Category from the 15 national awards on offer.
Other Mahurangi students to compete were Jerome Cunningham, Laurens Bubbert and Matthew Georgetti.
Forty-two schools participated in the competition. As part of the programme, all competing students got to try out the latest in electric vehicles at the EV World Expo South.
