HPV Challenge 2017

 

Congratulations to our Peninsula Grammar HPV Team who came a noble 20th place in the overall standings of the 2017 Annual RACV Energy Breakthrough Human Powered Vehicle Challenge. We commend the 12 Year 6 students who spent six months preparing for this event which has become a much-loved tradition for Peninsula Grammar.

Held from 22 to 25 November, the Challenge provided an opportunity for our students, teachers, parents and local businesses to work together to design and construct our HPV machine and to demonstrate innovation and efficient uses of energy while considering their impact on humans and the environment.

In our Trisled composite fibreglass, kevlar and carbon fibre vehicle and carrying the traditional name of ‘Mistral’, the team finished this gruelling race in an amazing 15th place in a field of 92 vehicles, covering 334 laps or the equivalent of 367.4 km. Other elements of the Challenge such as the presentation gave us a final placing of 20th overall – a wonderful result.

Through this program, our students developed remarkable team spirit, determination and grit, considerably broadened their educational horizons and had a great deal of fun.

We would like to thank our generous sponsors: Mornington Mazda, Bayport Group, The Sports Injury Clinic, Global Risk & Investigation Group, APN Plastics, Catch.com.au, Bluegum, The Old Peninsula School Association (TOPSA), Signarama Frankston, L & O Technology and Trisled.
