Team Bukkamalazir’s 2005 performance of 651 laps (835 kms) beat Battered Sav’s 2001 record of 643 laps – in November 2005. Both teams from Bendigo Secondary College were competing in the Human Powered Vehicle (HPV) section of the 2005 RACV Energy Breakthrough held annually Maryborough, Vic.
If I read the Honour Board correctly at http://www.racvenergybreakthrough.net/resultsRecords.shtml, what is STILL intact is Battered Sav’s LAP Record of 45.55 km/h. Team Bukkamalazir averaged 44.30km/h over their 651 kms – an outstanding effort by both teams!
Stepen Rowe, Timekeeper and Lap Scorer for the event since 1993, also informs us that the actual team name as entered and accepted by
the organisers of the 2001 event, was not ‘Battered Sav’ but Sea Bass.
