My Experience at the NEAT Rally was a exciting experience, This was my first ever time going to an EV competition and it was great. I learned about the competitors EV’s and how to compete in pit crew and how to interact with the other competitors. The challenging part for me being a sophomore without knowing much about cars was probably the pit crew. I plan to improve my skills in pit crew by practicing with my team with a practice schedule for the people who are going to be in pit crew
My name is Ashley and I am on the EV Team at my school. I am also the teams leader, this is my third year on the team. This past weekend our school went to the NEAT Rally near Virginia. This is my third time going on this trip and it was as amazing as it is each year. I love doing this event; it is so much more relaxed than the EV Challenge. At this event I was the Miatas driver. I drove in the autocross, range, and acceleration. I also did jeopardy, troubleshooting, and pit crew. I had a lot of fun, and every year I get to meet a lot of incredible people. At these events, it’s not like a football game where you don’t like your opponents, the other teams talk to each other, we have lunch and dinner together. It’s all in good spirit, and that’s one thing I love about this. I love getting to know new people. I can’t wait for the next event in April.
