Our Vehicle

Last year we took 11th place at the HPVC East competition (2013) with our vehicle, Perpetual Mootion. This was our first time engineering a full carbon-fiber fairing, and the second year with two wheels. With all that we’ve learned from dipping our hands into these more recent endeavors, we have a long list of improvements for this year which are guaranteed to make our next vehicle our fastest one yet.
