2008 - Győr

part 1

Further » to the description of the race


This year it was the third time that the Race of Alternative Driven Vehicles was organized in Győr. (www.ahjv.hu) On the first race even potato was used to make the driving of a vehicle by keen students. Today however serious solutions are born and the number of competitors is twice as much as it was on the first race. More and more people are thinking of protecting the environment for our descendants could live on the Earth in similar good conditions even after thousand years.


There could be found everything on this competition from the 3-wheeled "Antibringa" (which means the cycle of Anti and is called after its creator) through the solar panel driven 4-wheeler till the compressed air driven (was used on the race with compressed Nitrogen because of easier supplying) vehicle everything. The most vehicle was built with electric motor. The power to use the electric motor is stored in batteries. There were more teams who were using supercapacities for better acceleration.


It could be seen definitely that the spreading of usage of electric cars in town traffics is not an Utopia any more. Usable, vigouros solutions, converted series cars could be seen on this race, from which even more has its authorization for participating in public traffic. So the technics is already in our hands only we have to know to live with it. The possibility is open in front of the enterprising, some financial background having, wanting to protect the environment people to use the zero emission having electric cars instead of the gasoline eating monsters for short distances - even for 60-80 kms - typically for town traffic.
