What is Wisconsin Supermileage @ FVTC?
This project involves middle and high school students building a
concept vehicle with the goal of achieving ultra-high fuel economy. Vehicles
in the "gas" classes will compete in four engine classes: Briggs Stock, Open Stock, Modified. and
Unlimited. Electrically powered vehicles in the WI Electrathon portion of the challenge will have three classes to compete in. The challenge to the students is to design a vehicle around
an engine, gas or electric, which will achieve the highest fuel economy or endurance possible. This
project encourages students to practice creative problem-solving skills
in a team atmosphere. It also helps students build awareness of
technology, trades, and the efficient use of fossil fuels and alternative propulsion options. Don't miss
out on this great learning experience!
The Vehicle Configuration/Safety Specifications portion of the Rules are now centralized for all of the Wisconsin Supermileage events through the home-page of WI Supermileage
Further development of the rules and inspection policies is in progress and will be ready for the 2007 events across WI. Keep an eye on the WI Supermileage
site for updates.
