HPV & Pushcart Assistance Available
Don’t know where to start or need a helping hand?
There are a number of contacts who are more than happy to help you design or construct a human powered vehicle or pushcart.
A number of past participants in the RACV Energy Breakthrough now operate small enterprises which service the wider HPV community with free advice, tips, design help or complete vehicle creation.
Jamie McNamee, Dominic Jackson and Kyle Tatt are all examples of the careers young people can create through the Breakthrough.
Peter Gerdsen is on hand with advice and support for the Pushcarts. He has assisted an amazing number of teams over the past decade and is always eager to see the students “learn through doing”.
For more information, head to the Assistance & For Sale section of the website.

Nigel Preston is a self-confessed 'HPV Tragic'. After 'catching the bug' from his older brother, he helped launch the Energy Breakthrough program at Eaglehawk SC with his dad and some mates way back in 1998. Having participated in the EB for four years he finished his VCE in 2001 and volunteering to help with the event management straight away. He's been helping out ever since. Nigel has also been a part of teams that have taken line honours at the EB in 2000 & 2001 (Bendigo Senior SC); the Australian International Pedal Prix 2003, 2004 & 2009 (Bendigo Youth Racing); and the Wonthaggi Human Powered Grand Prix in 2019.
