While driving, Behrend SAE Club uses a “burn and coast” method.

While driving, Behrend SAE Club uses a “burn and coast” method. This means that at the start of the competition, the car accelerates for a bit before the engine is turned off, so it can coast the remainder of the course. It’s an intentional attempt at fuel conservation.
