Bryce Named Driver for 2016 EV Grand Prix

Friday, April 1st, 2016

Bryce will be racing for the University of Oklahoma at the 2016 Electric Vehicle Grand Prix. This race has been bittersweet for the Sooner EV Racing Team. Bryce stood on the podium in 2013 for OU as he was able to help bring home OU’s first ever overall EV Grand Prix title. In 2014, Bryce qualified pole by 2 seconds. Unfortunately, after an electrical failure, Bryce did not start the final race.

Among driving, Bryce is also Marketing and Mechanical Lead for the team. Alongside Bryce, this amazing student team consisting of Andrew Meyer (Team Lead), Shady Ghoneim (Electrical Lead), and Ian Grady (Design Lead) have been working very hard throughout the offseason and in between college classes to prepare for the race. Testing will resume this month (April) as the team prepares to head to Indianapolis, Indiana in May for this years race.

Bryce and the rest of the Sooner EV Racing Team would like to thank all of the sponsors that have contributed to this educating and fun project. Without their support, competing at this race would not be possible.

Updates, video and photos, both leading up to and during the EV Grand Prix will be posted on Facebook Here
