According to her, the target this year is to become champion in each category.

Meanwhile, the new Apatte 62 team will depart on October 27 2023, but the previous car departed first for Jakarta International E prix Circuit.

The number of KMHE contingent are 26 people. The competition branches that will be participated in are Prototype Diesel and Urban Ethanol with seven participants each.

According to Febby, a representative of the support team, preparations for the competition have been carried out for the past six months, starting with research on body design, frame and energy consumption research.
