Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology from Indiana, US, will be the first American team to compete in the Uni SA Australian HPV Super Series when it joins the field for Round 2 in Loxton in May.
The team, comprising of six mechanical engineering students, and two support staff, will travel to Australia to race their carbon fibre ‘delta’ recumbent HPV, Rose Pedal.
President of the Rose-Hulman Human Powered Vehicle (HPV) Team, Ariella Halevi, said they became aware of the Australian competition through the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) when investigating broader options and other global races to push their boundaries of design and endurance.
The team arrive in Australia on May 4th, with their vehicle and equipment shortly after, ready to head out to the Riverland for the competition on May 7th.
