EAGAN, MN--The St. Thomas Academy (STA) high school Experimental Vehicle Team (EVT) that's sponsored by Power Systems Research won its class in the International Shell Eco-Marathon Drivers' World Champions held today (May 28, 2017) in London.

The race was cancelled after the first of four laps due to rain, but STA had the fastest lap in the time trial and was in first place by a wide margin when the race was called. Our team's good fortune this year makes up for our bad luck last year when the STA car crashed while leading the race.

We'll have details on the PSR website next week.
