Citrus Auto Team Participates in High-Mileage Contest


Citrus Automotive and Physics Eco-marathon (CAPE) Owls participated in the 2014 Shell Eco-marathon Challenge, to see which student-built vehicle could travel the farthest distance using the least amount of energy. Citrus College serves Monrovia. The Owls ranked 27th out of 41 in its category. Its Citrus EV8 reached a high of 186.13 miles per gallon. The team, composed of seven students, was one of 126 student teams from across North, Central and South America to compete at the eighth annual global competition, which took place April 24-27 at the Discovery Green Park in Houston.
