RDA Hunter’s ME Program is proud to be the major sponsor of the 2017 Hunter Valley Electric Vehicle Festival which is being held at the Newcastle Kart Racing Club, Cameron Park on Wednesday 29th November.
The Hunter Valley Electric Vehicle Festival ‘EVFest’ is all about thinking of sustainable transport in fun and innovative ways that support the development of electric vehicle industries in the region.
The Hunter Valley Electric Vehicle Festival is delivered each year by a range of supportive Hunter organisations and businesses, led by the Tom Farrell Institute for the Environment at the University of Newcastle.
The EV Prize event is held every year, and sees high school students build and race their electric bikes at Newcastle Kart Racing Club at Cameron Park, for the coveted EV Prize. Check out the 2016 EVPrize Results.
This year we are again engaging with our primary school students in the region and beyond, who are building solar-powered cars and racing them on a 20m straight or oval track, the Mini EV Prize. We have included an additional category for High School students to participate in the Mini EV Prize in 2017.
