The Tufts Hybrid Racing team is excited for 2013, and especially to get back to work on their race car, the THR 13.
The team was founded in 2008 under the leadership of Matt Liberatore, E09, and with support from School of Engineering Dean’s Office and the Peter and Denise Wittich Family Fund for Alternative Energy Research. They have competed in the annual Formula Hybrid competition, where university students design, build, and race high-performance hybrid and electric vehicles.

The Tufts Hybrid Racing Team recently debuted its new car–the “THR12″–by taking it for a test drive on the Tufts campus. The cutting-edge hybrid car has been in the works for two years, and the team is excited to keep refining its creation before the 2013 Formula Hybrid Competition.
The team, which is supported by the School of Engineering Dean’s Office and the Peter and Denise Wittich Family Fund for Alternative Energy Research, has been building hybrid racing cars since 2008, and now works under the direction of Chris Jackson, E13, this year’s project leader.
