A New Way To Contact Us

We now have a new email address. We would like you to either comment on this blog, or email us at sundancer@houston.k12.ms.us. Whether it be questions, comments, or information, we would love to hear from you. Thank You!!

Such excitement!!

The Sundancer team is proud to announce that we will be receiving one of the most competitive car molds in the United States and quite possibly one of the most competitive car molds in the world!!
At this time, we are planning on competing in all three divisions in the Dell-Winston Challenge during the summer. These divisions are advanced, classic, and open. We are extremely excited to be doing this!
This opens the doors to many new experiences for all of us, but this also calls for many new sponsors and many more people willing to contribute to our cause.
We would greatly appreciate all the help that we could possibly receive!
If it is possible for photos to be taken of us on Saturday, December 1, 2007, at our hometown parade at 4:00, we will post them on Monday, December 3, 2007.

Thank you!

Hi everyone!
This blog is now under construction by Hilary Hancock and Jayla Alexander. We will be updating frequently... At least every Monday. We express our sincerest apologies on behalf of the whole team for not updating lately. We've been extremely busy since we have arrived back in the United States. We just got back from Australia about two weeks ago now. The trip and the race went over very well. We appreciate everyone's efforts and support to help us out in any way possible.
At this time, we are entering our "renaissance" stage... We're moving towards improving our original car AND building a new car that will hold the title "Sundancer II".
...However, right now, our main focus is Sundancer II. Our original car is currently traveling in international waters on its way back from Australia! We cannot wait for its arrival so we can start improving! All the team members are tremendously excited about the new car and everything involved in progressing towards a superior outcome! Here are some pictures from the race in Australia... Hope you enjoy!

The team flew from L.A., over the Pacific Ocean, and to Brisbane by Qantas airlines. This particular flight was about fourteen hours long!

After arriving at our hotel in Darwin, we took a minute or two to check out the view from the balcony of our rooms. Kerry's Automotive Group (Chrysler) in Australia donated vehicles for our team to use throughout the race.

*Special thanks to you for such a great contribution!

This is our car out on a "practice run" on the Hidden Valley race track.

Mr. Reese celebrated his birthday while we were in Australia and
received an official Panasonic World Solar Challenge shirt as a present from his team.
First day of race!
We were caught up by a red light leaving Darwin.
