Driver

CIA's drivers pose with their buggies during design competition 2010

Drivers provide the human touch to the powerful ~2 minutes that comprise a trip around the course. The driver is in charge of piloting the buggy so it goes its fastest and looks its sleekest--reaching speeds of up to 40 miles per hour at the trickiest part of the course, the Chute. A driver is typically a short, lightweight female willing to put life and limb in jeopardy to pilot a buggy around the course. The goal of having small drivers is to allow us to have buggies that are light and well-driven so that they are fast around the course, most drivers are around 5 feet tall, and petite all around. They are equipped with standardized safety equipment.
