The Tufts Hybrid Racing Team is excited to announce our partnership with Tech/Ops Sevcon who will supply the motor controller for our next car, the THR 12. As the motor controller is the interface between our drive-train and electrical systems, it represents a major step forward in the production of the THR 12, and we are thrilled to have the support of Tech/Ops Sevcon.
Tufts Hybrid Racing has officially joined the 21st century, and is now dabbling in social media. Check out our new Facebook page!
The Tufts Hybrid Racing Team is off and designing!! Due to our very young team and the lack of development options for the FH 10 (our old car), we’ve decided to take a year off from the Formula Hybrid competition. Over the next two years we will design and assemble a totally new race car, the THR 12. The new team is extremely motivated and is ready to take on this challenge!
The new core team members are:
Chris Jackson – Project Leader
Rob Kaufman – Financial Manager
Simon Metcalf – Lead Powertrain Engineer
Alex Chan – Lead Chassis Engineer
Nathan Goldsberry – Lead Suspension Engineer
Will Salisbury- Lead Electrical and Computer Engineer
