Cathay-MECH Pedal Kart Becomes a Winner

A four-wheeled human-powered pedal kart designed and built by the Department of Mechanical Engineering (MECH) for Cathay Pacific Airways saw the airline achieve a Race Winner Award in the Ladies' Division of the Hong Kong 24hr Pedal Kart Grand Prix charity race in February. The award-winning kart, pedaled by the "Cathay Angels", finished 778 laps in 24 hours in relay on a specially designed track in Victoria Park. The annual fund-raising event for local and regional charities was organized by the Association of Round Tables in Hong Kong.
