While all the other teams were racing in the last minute qualifier, the U of M Solar Vehicle Project took our free day to drive the first 200+ miles of the race route. We started at the start line at the Bob Bullock State History Center and then headed out the first stage stop at Weatherford, Texas. The car drove great, and the team got some great practice driving as a team in a caravan.
The picture below is a team picture we took on the last day of Formula Sun after our first place victory. The track was setting up for a military show, and we thought a gigantic tank would make a nice backdrop for our picture.
