Event Report

Mexico's 2023 NDEW edition along with ELECTRATON was a pure EVracing day where visitors were able to see and talk to designers and builders of college eKarts that gathered up at La Marquesa's "PORTEZUELO GRANDE" race track in one of the busiest highways that connects Mexico city with the city that resembles America's Detroit due to the automotive industry of the region: Toluca.

We also had RBC International Logistics' general director, engineer Ricardo Becerril, attended himself to wave the checkered flag to the winning team. The initial's green flag was waved by engineer Gustavo Cardelas, operative director at ITEACADEMY. 

The winners podium presented by ACE Automotive and RBC Intl Logistics congratulated the universities' participation and representative of the new teams and orginizing committee granted award plaques to the winners .
