Posted by RACV Energy Breakthrough on Saturday, 21 November 2015

Saturday is always the busiest day of the RACV Energy Breakthrough. With all Primary HPV and Pushcart events escalating to their epic conclusions, and all Secondary trails commencing. With innovation, a junkyard challenge, a VIP luncheon and Eye of the Tiger playing at least four times, Saturday was exciting, hectic and eclectic.

Primary HPVs

Primary Endurance Trials concluded at noon today with a sailing victory from Frankston Primary School’s Overtakers. Congratulations also to Derinya Primary School, Maryborough Education Centre and Jells Park Primary that fought out the other podium positions. Avoca Primary School won the HPVA1 Category, followed by Garfield Fliers and Clunes Primary School.

Special mention needs to go to Willmott Park Primary School whose sportsmanship, resilience in lieu of tragedy and spirit really epitomises the values of the RACV Energy Breakthrough.

Full results will be available soon.


Pushcarts concluded today with sprints and a celebrity specialty race. The fastest sprint was recorded by the Pink Panthers in the PC1 category, only seconds in front of Kildare Heroes, the victors of the PC2 category.

Full results will be available soon.


History was made during the Try-athalon Endurance Trials with the race concluding with its first ever victory lap. Firebreathing Rubber Duckies took out the trial for the sixth year in a row, clocking 253 laps. The final rider for their team describes EDEC Racing as “one big happy family.”

Full results will be available soon.

Innovations in Technology

Creative primary school students constructed miniature floating crafts, powered by an energy source other than battery power. Following a judged presentation and a Design & Construction component, students race their rafts with an aluminum can down a trough of water.  Overall winners in Innovations in Technology were Glendal Primary School, followed closely by Carisbrook Primary School.

Innovations in Technology also included a Junkyard Challenge where primary students repurposed and recycled construction materials to create a bridge. Prizes were awarded for aesthetics, structure and teamwork to Strathfieldsay Primary School, Epson Primary School and St Augustine’s of Maryborough, respectively.

Secondary HPVs & EEVs

The first year of racing HPVs and EEVs together on the RACV track has pushed performance to a new level, with both vehicles battling to prove the superiority of their energy source. With a new and longer track for 2015, all fastest lap times are records. The current record on the RACV track belongs to Good Shepherd Hamilton, Time Warp, at 1 minute and 53 seconds.

The pioneer EEV trial on the RACV Track sees Rode Rage’s Powerswitch taking the lead. Overall track leader (HPVs and EEVs inclusive) is Woodleigh School’s A Little Too Aero.
