We've cleaned and got everything ready for training and the race.

Friday, May 22, 2015

We started training for the race in Australia and getting our drivers prepared and ready. Before the drivers are allowed to drive in the race in Australia they must have a total of 12 hours.

     This is some more of our training. Some of our guys were securing the window for our                                                                   driver.

This is a different type of training in which we watch past teams compete to try and get an idea of how the race will actually be in Australia.

The school year might be winding down, but we are still training with Sundancer to compete in the World Solar Challenge this fall!  To get ready for the race, we are prepping not only our car but also our team to ensure we are in tip top condition by the time we arrive in Australia.  We are counting down the months until October and cannot wait to leave, even though a few of us are not looking forward to the heat of the outback!
