Come along to support a team, admire the innovation, and experience the thrill of EV racing!

School crews go head-to-head in drag racing, street circuits, innovation challenges and more at EVolocity National Finals - all in Electric Vehicles they've built themselves.

Electric vehicles are fun. They are the future. EVolocity is about fast forwarding that future – with programmes to inspire young Kiwis into sustainable engineering pathways. Students are equipped with an electric bike componentry kit. Throughout the year, they design and build their own kart or bike, and compete against other schools. National Finals sees the best of the best compete for the ultimate title.

As well as action-packed racing, there’s plenty to enjoy:

  • Get up close and personal with the RNZAF Grumman Aircraft and meet the team
  • Check out the Auckland University Formula SAE Race Car
  • Power up with Food Trucks and Coffee Carts
