Late last year simPRO sponsored a young team in the RACV Energy Breakthrough. Gerard's (from our Melbourne sales team) daughter, of Kennington public school was a participant.

90 primary schools competed in the HPV 14 hour endurance challenge. Our teams came 7th and 41st.



The RACV Energy Breakthrough is an exciting program designed to provide opportunities for students, teachers, parents and local industry to work together to design and construct a vehicle, a machine or innovation in technology that will represent an ‘energy breakthrough’.

The race was only one portion of the event. Participants were also judged on:

  • Safety and manufacturing inspections

  • Their presentation of the vehicle to RACV committee explaining design, aerodynamics, environmental friendliness, team work and fitness


Following such a great performance by the team everyone left the event proud of their tin lids and the organising team at Kennington PS.
