Yale wins international racecar competition with hybrid car


Yale engineering students showed off their hybrid gas/electric racecar on campus today as part of a victory celebration.

The Bulldogs racing team swept most of the main prizes at the Formula Hybrid International competition in New Hampshire yesterday.

It took about two years for a group of a dozen students to build the car from the ground up.

“It was a pretty small team, but because we had such a small group, a lot of people got to do a lot of different components of the car and really dig in,” said Chinmay Jaju, the chief engineer of the Bulldogs Racing Team.

Engineering students at Yale are picking up a lot of awards these days. Their teams also won the rocket-launching and robot contests this year.
