120x90-vehicle2.jpgThank you for a safe and exciting BUV Competition. Thanks also to Tuff Torq Corporation and Yanmar Corporation for sponsoring the event!

Scoring: There were a few slight score corrections from the point totals announced. The only change that affected team rankings Trine’s score on Spec Check which caused Trine and UC Club to switched positions. Trine received a “0” for Spec Check by mistake. The scorekeeper did not see or possibly receive the sheet and gave Trine a 0.  In reality, they received a 3.3 for the event which put their total score at 72.95. My apologies for not catching this error ahead of time.

Special congratulations to the winners:

  • 1st Place:           Calera
  • 2nd Place:          Purdue University
  • 3rd Place:           Trine University
  • Customer Choice Award: Alfred State College (selected by JAARS - a leader in mission logistics & technology)
  • Most Innovative Feature: Purdue University for their belt transmission
  • Best Free Style Design University of Cincinnati – Club 1
  • Enduro Event Winner: Calera

Thank you to the teams donating their vehicles:

  • Northern Illinois University:    Kenya
