Supermileage Featured in uOttawa Promo Video

Well it looks like we’re famous now, we’ve been included in this surprisingly inspirational promotional video for the university. Although our team might not be quite as cool as pole vaulting, we’d like to think we’re pretty close. See if you can spot all of the Supermileage team members, we’re the one’s with the tools and greasy engines.

Website Launch

We are proud to announce the launch of our new website, and with it, the sharing of our pursuits, struggles, and achievements. We believe in the sharing of all knowledge gained through the construction of our vehicle because we are not against the other teams, we are against the rampant, unsustainable consumption of fossil fuels. Without the open and widespread advancement of high efficiency and alternative fuel vehicles the planet we leave to our descendants will be a lesser place, we will not stand idle and wait for change. We believe that there is no limit to what can be attempted; our time is the only cost, and wasting it, our only risk.
