MELBOURNE, FLA. — One of Florida Tech’s senior design projects, the racing electric vehicle, (REV), will participate in the Battery Beach Burnout at
Countyline Dragway, Miami, Fla., Jan. 25 and 26. The Florida Electric Auto Association, Vectrix and AC Propulsion will host the third annual free event.
The burnout consists of several competitions among electric vehicles, including a drag race, auto-cross and scooter-cross.
The premier annual electric vehicle event in the Southeast, the burnout aims to raise public and media awareness of the current state of electric vehicles
