I was at both, foreshore and go-kart track 2012.
The foreshore WAS windy!
Is the festival this year about the same size and scope? I have not heard anything about it till just now on this thread.
I helped Belmont Christian College (BCC) with their entry. Learned a lot along the way. Not even sure they are in it this year!?
Tesla: nice automobiles, ridiculous recharging setup!

Thank you Gabz, we got 2nd place in the Pole Position prize. Unfortunately our gearing caused us to pull too much current up the hill. Pete did however lead Open Class for the first 35-40 minutes and lead the chain classes overall for about half an hour. All a big learning curve really. Feel free to add/like us on Facebook 'Coulomb Motorsport' for photos and updates. :)

I take it you are bringing the Delorean and Elmofo this year in October?

I meant to build something for the endurance race this year but time got away on me again!

POSTPONED to 2014 - AWWWW.....

http://www.hunterevfestival.net/index.p ... ow/ev-show

No explanation as to why, but the Sydney AGM is on the 27th of October (same date) - would assume that there would be very few exhibitors.

Someone has informed me that the AGM for this year (being 2013) is in Canberra on the 12th, not on the 27th.

Ahem. Image

As to why they have actually cancelled it - no information.

yep from the facebook page

Dear Hunter Valley Electric Vehicle Festival Supporter,
It is with much sadness that due to circumstances beyond our control, we are unable to run the show in our chosen location of Newcastle Foreshore Park, and I inform you that we have decided to postpone until 2014, the Hunter Valley Electric Vehicle Festival Show, which was scheduled to run on Sunday, 27 October 2013.
We would like to thank each and every one of you for your support and willingness to be involved in such a wonderful event. We will be processing refunds for those of you who have paid your site fees to participate in the Show, so please let us know if you do not receive a refund by October.
As many of you are aware, our Festival raises much awareness of the capabilities of our great Hunter Region to become the place of change for the future of our transport industry. We aim to continue to bring this conversation to the forefront of the Hunter (and the worlds’) consciousness, and invoke change in even the smallest of ways. A small spark can ignite a huge fire.
We will keep you informed of any decisions in the future which will enable us to run our Show again, however, at this stage, it will not be run in 2013.
Once again, we would like to thank you for your ongoing support, generosity and willingness to be involved in such a great project, and we look forward to working with you all again in the near future.
With warm regards,

That's the crappiest website ever to find out any information on the event.

Surely someone can put up more details than that?!

I'm interested in the grand prix - no idea how you get involved, the website doesn't help.

the facebook page is more up to date... at least you get a quick answer from it.

they haven't opened up registrations for 2014 or the new rules but you should be able to read the 2013 rules http://www.hunterevfestival.net/index.p ... tion-rules
