Forum Page and Poll

The 2017 forum page is now open….

This page is designed for students to ask questions and make design and construction suggestions. We want to know everything about the vehicles especially things that you think might be able to be improved. Comfort, seating, noise, brakes, water bottles, walkie talkies, pedaling, vision, horn, safety, gears! Any topic can be included. Chances are if you’re thinking it, someone else may be too and besides you are the ones who are in the bike……

Check it out on the left hand side of the home page. Click on the link, give your topic a title that makes it obvious what it is about, then write a review, question, complaint, suggestion etc.. The design and construction portion of the event is crucial to the overall success and the more evidence we have of your input into vehicle improvements the better.

Whilst you’re here fill out the poll for the favourite vehicle….

Cycling Helmet

The RACV Energy Breakthrough Challenge heavily emphasises safety. All vehicles go through scrutineering to ensure they are safe and abide by the rules. The students are quizzed on their knowledge of the event safety and vehicle safety. And finally, the students must wear their own safety gear while competing. One very important safety device the students need to have is a correct fitting helmet. The students need to provide their own helmet for the event and it MUST have the Australian Standard Sticker inside (See link).

Students need to make sure they have their own helmet before they will be allowed to practice in the vehicles.
