« Final Day of Scrutineering | Race Updates Main | Qualifying Day 1 »

The University of Minnesota is officially qualified!

Earlier today, Centaurus completed enough laps to qualify for the main event; the cross-country race from here to Calgary. The team is still waiting for the judges to check everything over and make this "official", and Jeff still needs to log a few more laps in the car to be qualified as a driver, but this is another big milestone we've passed.

Officially Qualified



Some bulletin board material from the michigan blog:

"We are currently first place in laps completed. Our biggest competitor from the beginning of the day, Minnesota, has spent a significant amount of time in the pits with both electrical and mechanical problems."

I guess Nick's comment means Michigan managed to eke through dynamic and brake tests. I'd try to stay FAR FAR in front of them, so as to avoid getting rear-ended like their lead car in Australia.

Congrats on qualifying. A little extra validation that you guys built one heck of a car.

Go, Gophers! We're so excited for you. Keep up the great work. We're looking forward to seeing you in Fargo. Be wonderful!

Great Job!

Make sure problems are fixed in this stage. Being first at this stage is nice, but Calgary is where it counts.

Solar Road Trip! cool//////

The car looks great under the checkered flag, shades of things to come! Way to go team, keep up the great work, be smart, race right, git er done!

Congrats guys. Looking forward to seeing y'all off here in Plano this weekend!
