« We're off to Formula Sun 2005 | Race Updates Main | Test Laps and Competition »

An early morning . . .

Rolling out of their sleeping bags at 4:20 AM, the team headed to Heartland Topeka Raceway for the beginning of Formula Sun 2005. The morning began with an all team meeting to go through rules, take role and introduce the rayce offials. From there, the team prepared the car for system inspections including; mechanical, electrical, array, body and sizing and dynamic testing. With most of the preparations complete, the team was able to meet the other teams and admire their respective cars. After a successful day of scrutineering, the team is almost ready to start turning out practice laps on the track. Base camp solar car is set up at the track and will serve as the team's home until Friday. Take a look at today's photos and check back frequently for more updates.
