The Great Tauranga Duck Race is an annual charity event held by the Tauranga Te Papa Rotary Club. All proceeds go to supporting the three local surf lifesaving clubs, Papamoa, Omanu and Mount Maunganui.
In 2019 we chose to enter the ‘Assisted’ duck category, meaning you could get that duck across the finish line any way you can!
The extensive training paid off, and we took the win!
After the race, our EV Duck was suvccessfully sold on Trade Me and a further $500 was donated by Bay City Mitsubishi to the Tauranga Te Papa Rotary Club.
Seaweed in the propeller kept us from showing of the full speed.(But we still beat the competition by a good 5 minutes!)
Pre-Race testing shows the true speed of our EV Duck!
