The Damascus College Sustainable Racing Team (SRT) is a group of enthusiastic and dedicated students and teachers who are interested in bikes, mechanics and science.

Student members of SRT work throughout the year to design, build and test vehicles within detailed specifications. It requires a team effort and an across-the-curriculum approach. The Human Powered Vehicles (HPV's) designed and built are entered into an endurance race in Maryborough (Victoria) well known as the RACV Energy Breakthrough.The aim is for students to study the appropriate theory that allows them to design, construct and compete in a Human Powered Vehicle (HPV), hybrid or electric vehicle.

Students investigate a range of concepts including principles of flight and aerodynamics, steering systems, drive systems, welding techniques, safety aspects in motor sports and pit crew organisation. All of this and more is supported with hands-on practical testing and experiments.
