“Beaver Bolt Racing” Debuts at Eco-Shell Marathon

Oregon State ASME student chapter, advised by Dr. Chris Hoyle, will send nine students to Detroit this week to compete in the Shell Eco-Marathon. The Shell Eco-marathon is a unique competition that challenges students around the world to design, build and drive the most energy-efficient car. With three annual events in Asia, Americas and Europe, student teams take to the track to see who goes further on the least amount of fuel. The MIME project to build the car -- which the team named “Beaver Bolt” -- began last summer, and relied the efforts of numerous ASME students including members of the chassis team, the body team as well as fundraising and donation initiative teams.

The team has been working nearly round the clock in the past few days to perfect things ahead of their inaugural trip to the competition. Contributions include an outstanding effort from Brian Bove, School of EECS senior, who contributed his extensive knowledge to the design of the electrical system as well as 2015 ASME President Chase Jones, and 2016 President Austin Sandifer.
