|Day:||Saturday, September 9, 2017 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
|Location:||Knoxville - Neyland Stadium, TN
This event was jointly managed by the East Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition (Jonathan Overly) and the Univ. of Tennessee at Knoxville EcoCAR 3 program that is part of the Tickle College of Engineering. We obtain approval for and end up having some very valuable space right in front of one of the largest entrances to Neyland Stadium where the UT Vols plan football and which holds over 100,000 people. We cannot do test drives because of the large flow of traffic walking by us around and into the stadium during the event. We had 4 vehicles: UTK's EcoCAR 3 hybridized Chevy Camaro, a UTK Nissan Leaf, a Chevy Bolt, and last but not least a converted 1989 Blakely Bernardi that is a pure EV. The Knoxville Electric Vehicle Association assisted in bringing the Bernardi and staffing the booth for the day. In addition to me, our intern Coral Thayer helped out that day as did about 10 students from the UTK EcoCAR 3 Program. We started five hours before kickoff, so we meet many people throughout the time we re there.
