Formula Zero breaks FIA speed record!

11,591 seconds

Rotterdam, Netherland, 16/09/07

Date article: 16/09/07  

On 16th September the Formula Zero driver, Bo Ridder, broke the official international FIA 1/8 mile (201,168m) record for fuel cell vehicles. Shaving 0.3 seconds off the existing record time, he set the new record at 11,591 seconds.

Politician Mark Harbers gave the starting signal in front of the town hall in Rotterdam with a Rotterdam Climate Initiative flag. Formula Zero set this record at 11,869 seconds last year, which was the first time the FIA fuel cell record had been attempted. Mr Harbers drank the kart's exhaust water to celebrate the breaking of the record!

Formula Zero Championship Teams

Four of the twelve university teams that are taking part in the Design Competition came to the record-breaking attempt, and presented their design concepts. The best seven designs will win a fuel cell and take part in the Formula Zero Championship 2008....and the competition is definitely on! The four university teams from Imperial College London, Eupla from Zaragoza, TU Delft and Lawrence Tech from Detroit finally got a chance to meet and discuss who will be the first Formula Zero Champion. Imperial College London may have scrambled to the top of the podium for the photo moment (see below, right) but there's a lot of designing and engineering to go, and competition is tough!
