First Drive!

On Saturday, we took the THR 12 out for her first drive!  We were just driving on our YASA electric motor this time (with limited torque at that), but we’ll start driving with the combustion engine and then in full hybrid mode soon.  This represents the realization of over two years of hard work, and the entire team is very excited.  We will continue testing for the next few weeks before beginning to update our car for the 2013 Formula Hybrid Competition.

Oxford YASA Motors
Tufts Hybrid Racing is excited to announce our partnership with Oxford YASA motors who will supply the electric motor for our next car, the THR 12.  As we begin to reach the end of our design phase, a lot of work can now be compeleted to integrate the motor into our hybrid power train.  We are thrilled to have Oxford YASA Motors as a partner, and cannot wait to see what their motor can do.
