Impressive debut performance by PEGGIE!
Dr. Darren Kavanagh a postdoctoral researcher and member of the Department of Engineering Science Energy and Power Group, said: "Competing at a European level as a new entry into the competition this is an impressive result, especially given the fact that we had such a small team, and some of our competitors had very large budgets. Our car and team were very popular, we garnered a lot of interest and media attention throughout the event - people were very curious to learn more about our team and the elegant little blue and white striped car known as "PEGGIE!" All in all, it presents us with a lot of scope and opportunity to build on for continued success".
PEGGIE was developed by a team of engineers from the Energy and Power Group in the Department of Engineering Science and the Oxford Martin School’s Institute for Carbon and Energy Reduction in Transport.
