You will be driving the kart 3 times- during practice runs and during the endurance test.
You will be on  team with 3 other students. Your team will be mentored by a Purdue student while working on the kart, developing an understanding of vehicle basics and a strategy for power management.

After two days of classroom/lecture, your team will take your go-kart to a local track and complete an endurance test.
