The 1st Annual Buckingham STEM Electrathon Rally will be held on July 23rd, 24th, 25th, 2021 at Buckingham Field in Lehigh Acres, Florida. Bring the entire family for a mini vacation filled with Electrathon racing, beaches, movie theatres, hotel swimming pool and other fun activities in the area.
The three days of racing will be on Buckingham Field (airstrip) that allows us to have Course Layout A (not to scale), approximately 1.09 miles long
Course Layout B (not to scale), approximately 1.748 miles long
We have scheduled the race days so that families can spend some time together after each race day.
Event schedule: 2021 Summer Schedule
Prize money and awards are based on a minimum of three cars in each class (high school, open, advanced battery) per race day. The total laps (most overall laps) for the race day will determine the place winners. We will give trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each class, each day. Each 1st place winner will also receive $100 cash each day in each class (high school, open, advanced battery). Each 2nd place winner will receive a Bosch Charger each day in each class (high school, open, advanced battery). Each 3rd place winner will receive a Bosch cap each day in each class (high school, open advanced battery).
On Friday, July 23rd, there will be a special race, a 20 minute Dash Race for Team Sponsors, Principals, and Electrathon Board Members, regular drivers for a team are not eligible to race. This race gives those that are normally on the side lines the opportunity to experience the Electrathon fever that each driver has during the races. *NOTE* Cars cannot have lithium batteries for this race. Prizes for this race, 1st Place $75, 2nd place $50, 3rd Place $25, no trophies.
