Fueling Our Future with electric vehicles

Spark Tank giant cheque
Our giant cheque

BCCAN has received a grant of $5000 via the Sparktank project, an initiative of Skillset and the Office of Environment and Heritage. We are using this grant to run a community market research project in which we test support for the concept of electric car races on Mt Panorama (production and/or dedicated racing vehicles). We think we need to ensure that Bathurst's most recognisable icon - the Mt Panorama racing track - is embracing the energy revolution that is now upon us. We think racing cars should be fueled by renewable energy - not instead of the V8 festival, but alongside.


Note: Our survey has now closed, but we will be publishing the results of it right here very soon.
