Georgia Tech's undergraduate Chem-E-Car team, The Ramblin Wreck, won the 2016 AIChE Southern Regional Chem-E-Car competition, held recently in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. 

Competing against more than 30 schools, the Georgia Tech team made history this year by completing the first-ever perfect run (in either regional or national races, according to records) by hitting the required distance of travel (63 feet) exactly with its chemically powered vehicle.

The victory secures the team a spot in the national race in San Francisco at the annual AIChE (American Institute of Chemical Engineers) meeting this fall.

Advised by Professor Cliff Henderson, the Ramblin' Wreck team includes undergraduates Joshua Bishop, Jordan Harrison, Cindy Liauw, Jonathan Slater, and Jason Wu.
