Formula Hybrid+Electric Competition

Apr

Apr 29 – May 02

NH Motor Speedway, Loudon, NH

FH+E—founded and run by Thayer—will host a record 32 student teams for the 18th annual competition.

The teams—including Dartmouth Formula Racing—involve over 500 undergraduate and graduate engineering students from across the US and Canada who will be competing with the hybrid and electric high-performance race cars they designed and built over the last ten months.

Similar to the Formula SAE® competition, students compete in aspects of design, acceleration, handling and endurance of their vehicle while abiding by rules that minimize risk and preserve students' freedom to innovate. FH+E teams, however, are faced with the additional challenge of optimizing both energy efficiency and sustainability of materials used in their cars.

For spectators, Wednesday, May 1 is the best day to visit. The autocross and acceleration events run from 10:00am–3:30pm, and it's also FH+E School Visit Day when approximately 300 middle and high school students will enjoy expert-guided tours and talks with the teams.
