After years of designing, building, and testing, the EcoCAR vehicles finally got to truly cut loose in Milford this week as they experienced the Autocross. Professional GM drivers took each EcoCAR on four laps through a high-speed course to test its handling. Mississippi State came away with the fastest single lap, but the University of Waterloo was only milliseconds behind!
When the competitive testing was finished, team members had the opportunity to drive their cars on the Autocross. Later, teams headed to the General Motors Driving Experience, where they were able to test drive 40 GM vehicles through another handling course.
