Hager Hellas is proud supporter of "ARISTURTLE" team

The first electric racing car in North Greece was presented on Wednesday 28th  September 2016 at the LABattoir in Thessaloniki - a socially engaged machine laboratory of applied creativity that promotes culture. This electric racing car named ‘Aristurtle’, was designed and constructed by a group of students from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

The design and construction of the car began in 2013 with the support, not only of the community of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, but also of private companies. This is where Hager Hellas stepped in. The combination of the student’s electrical expertise and the potential of electrical vehicles were impossible to resist, and as such Hager Hellas supported this initiative and the Aristurtle team from the outset. As a platinum sponsor, Hager Hellas provides the financial support necessary for the construction of the car and its participation in European-wide university competitions.

The racing car was completed in July 2016, and one month later, the Aristurtle team successfully participated in the International FSAE Competition in Gyor, Hungary. Participating was a long and tough challenge for the team at all stages of the project, from cost planning and design, to the actual assembly and testing of the construction of the car, but the results were worth it.

Hager Hellas is a great supporter of young students’ ingenuity and enthusiasm in the development of new technological solutions, and in particular welcomes and supports those related to electric mobility. We wish the Aristurtle team success in their future endeavours and adventures; they will no doubt make us proud with their participation in competitions in or outside Greece.
