Today is an important day for students at the TU/e who are going to assemble their bikes, in which they want to travel 80 days around the world. This is no ordinary engine, but an engine battery according to the report by Omroep Brabant .
Students will participate in a new international racing contest for 80 days; and a total of 40,000 kilometers will be travelled across different continents. It is a race in stages, and the winner will be decided based on the person who has the fastest time over all those stages.
The race will take place next year, but the Eindhoven students who are participating have been preparing for some time. The engine was first designed on the computer and they are starting to assemble it today.
