Alright! My school's on there as well! I'm not in the engineering department so I won't be working on this personally, but I'll hopefully get a chance to see it first hand at some point during the process. I'll keep an eye out for more news on this, I'd love to see the final 'race' when they've got all 17 of them together.

Go Bucks!

You should be able to see it at different events. VT has participated in similar hybrid challenges in the past, and their car was on display from time-to-time.

May the best school win!

I was part of the ChallengeX competition with the Equinox (Similar thing just used a different car). Glad MTU is still on the list, hopefully we can do better with the Vue than we did with the Nox.
