E-Kart Club

Description:

Students work together as a team to build and modify an electric go-kart to compete in the Purdue EvGrandPrix Race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  The team is comprised of a driver, pit crew, CAD design team, and business marketing positions. This unique experience is modeled after an actual professional race team.

Eligibility:

Any Homestead High School student

Students are expected to attend group meetings and attend two official kart practices as well as the final race day in Indianapolis.

Activity Period:

October - May
