Thanks to the students and parents in the Burnside Evolocity Teams and the Burnside PTA we were able to shine at the Evolocity National event held at the Wigram Airbase. With over 40 of the regional finalists vehicles competing from all over the country, Burnside drove out with some impressive records. We were very successful at Regionals, and then proved it was not just luck by ending up as the second best placed School overall in NZ. 

Burnside won 
Drag Race in the Carts Category
Street Circuit in the Open Category 
Economy Run in the Carts and Open Categories
Gymkhana in the Open Category

Some of the carts they were competing against were amazing, and its a credit that our teams were able to build and compete against some highly organised teams that had fully incorporated this into their curriculums.

Well done to all students involved, and many thanks to the endless hours of parent help.
