The Florida Electric Auto Association (FLEAA) hosted the 4th Annual “Battery Beach Burnout”, an alternative fuel / electric vehicle competition, in Jupiter, FL at Florida Atlantic University February 21st and 22nd, 2008. The free event consisted of multiple competitions involving electric vehicles (EV), hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and plug-in hybrids (PHEV), including an auto-cross, scooter-cross, vehicle performance tests, Electrathon and a Show & Shine event.
As the premier annual electric vehicle event in the Southeast, the purpose of Battery Beach Burnout was to raise public and media awareness of the current state of electric and hybrid vehicles and to educate people about ‘green’ alternative fuel vehicles. The event showcased and promoted alternative energy technologies to power vehicles of the future to solve our transportation, energy and air quality problems.
The FLEAA had approximately 80 vehicles participating and on display throughout the weekend. Vehicles ranged from a beautiful 1920 Milburn Electric to the stylish new Tesla Roadster, from modern show-room hybrids to A123/Hymotion converted Prius’ to FPL’s Plug-in Hybrid Aerial Bucket trucks, and electric scooters to Electrathons.
This year's BBB logo and T-Shirt layout was designed by Chip Gribben.

During the Autocross we also ran an Audi TT for comparison to the EV’s. The Audi’s time was 30.81 secs. We also had another gas-powered vehicle (OK, it was a ‘Flex Fuel’ Tahoe) run the course. It’s time was 40.95 secs – but it needed flashing red and blue lights and a sirens to make it go fast!
Autocross High School:
