Plasma car races

Michele Pujol Room, Student Union Building

The legendary PlasmaCar Race celebrated its 10 year anniversary on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 with resounding success! 

15 teams competed for the coveted Hubcap Trophy and showed their team spirit with unique and creative costumes. Sore Losers #2 from Financial Planning & Operations were the big winners, with their counterpart team, Sore Losers #1, taking home the Pot of Gold trophy, collecting over $1000 in pledges for the United Way. Team Social Butterflies from Social Sciences won the Team Spirit award and lots of great prizes were handed out both to teams and spectators.

We honoured our emcee Cliff LeQuesne from 100.3 The Q! for his continued support and participation. His energy, enthusiasm, and good humour contributed to the success of the event.

This year, the PlasmaCar Race raised $5811 for United Way Greater Victoria, the most raised in Plasma Car Race history! What a wonderful way to celebrate the 10th year of the race!

Here is what our winners had to say:

“The United Way Plasma Car Race is the perfect venue for fostering some fun departmental teamwork while fundraising for a great cause. It’s win, win, win, win. (The extra two wins are for the race and fundraising trophies both proudly being displayed in our office.)”

About plasma cars

The PlasmaCar is a state-of-the-art ride-on toy that harnesses the natural forces of inertia, gravity and friction to propel itself. These mechanical marvels are so easy to operate that you simply tuck your feet up, rotate the steering wheel from left to right, and you're off to the races!
