King High School Electrathon is coming to Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faire on March 31, to represent Electrathon of Tampa Bay and showcase their competitive electric race car.
An electrathon is a race of custom built three or four wheeled electric vehicles, somewhat similar in overall appearance to a Go-Kart, but powered by an electric motor and batteries. Electrathon class vehicles are principally 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 basic format is to determine which car can travel the furthest distance in one hour’s time within the limitations of battery weight and other factors mentioned above.
King High School’s Electrathon Car will be at our event, and they may have their second care, currently under construction, on hand as well. We’re delighted to welcome King High School and Electrathon of Tampa Bay to Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faire!
