We will soon be migrating our official record list to the website from their current google doc location for improved visibility, access and promotion of OzHPV's activities.
OzHPV Inc. is an affiliated member association with the World Human Power Vehicle Association. As such, OzHPV is the sanctioning body for Australian WHPVA records. Any HPV records being claimed as “Australian Records” go through a process and follow rules set down by OzHPV Inc.
Persons attempting any Australian records should contact the OzHPV committee at least a month before their attempt providing full details of the attempt and location etc.
Equally, for a record to be ratified by OzHPV for Australian records and subsequently WHPVA if it is a World Record, full details must be submitted within 30 days of the attempt to the OzHPV Committee.
The rules are designed to be compatible with WHPVA's requirements. OzHPV will where possible assist with communicating with WHPVA officials should you be interested in attempting a world record.
