TRANSCRIPT

  • 2009 Formula Hybrid™ Rules

    The 2009 Formula Hybrid Rules are derived from the 2008 Formula SAE Rules. It is

    extremely important that teams read and comply with this document because there

    are significant differences from many of the original 2008 FSAE Rules.

    We strongly recommend that teams building new chassis for the 2009 Formula Hybrid

    competition comply with the 2009 Formula SAE chassis and safety Rules.

    The Formula Hybrid trademark is owned by the Trustees of Dartmouth College
