Princeton Racing Electric students design sustainable race car

September 7th, 2016

 

For the past two years, the student organization Princeton Racing Electric has been designing and building an all-electric, high-performance vehicle to compete in the international Formula Hybrid competition. Watch their journey to qualify for the event in New Hampshire.

When Ben Sorkin put on his racing suit and helmet, he knew the moment he waited over two years for had finally come. His teammates helped strap him into the driver's seat. For the first time, he would be energizing their electric car for its very first run around a race track.

Sorkin, a mechanical and aerospace engineering major and rising senior, is a member of the student organization Princeton Racing Electric.

"The thing that drives the team toward success is the intersection between passion and sustainability," Sorkin said. "We are doing research and innovation for a sustainable energy future."
