Electrathon of Tampa Bay

Electrathon racers are custom built three or four wheeled electric vehicles, similar in overall appearance to a Go-Kart, but powered by an electric motor and batteries. Electrathon class vehicles are defined and constrained by length and width (12 feet long and 4 feet wide maximum) and by battery weight and chemistry (73 lbs, sealed lead acid).  The race goal is to determine which car can travel the furthest distance in one hour’s time within the limitations of battery weight and other factors.
