On the 30th and the 31st of January 2014 the Al Forsan Sports Resort in Abu Dhabi will host the first TAQA GCC Hybrid Electric Challenge.
During this two-days of racing, student teams from universities across the Gulf region will compete against each other in hybrid electric cars which they have personally designed and built.
The first day of the championship will see a race of battery-powered electrical cars on the Al Forsan racetrack, to see which are the fastest and the ones that go the longest distance, whilst on the second day the generator-powered electrical hybrid cars will compete in a 3-hours endurance race. Detailed schedule for the 30th and 31st can be found here.
