Racing: Day 1

Hey solar fans;

Day 1 of raycing is progressing well. Eight cars made it to the track today. Besides us, University of Kentucky, Illinois State, Northwestern, and UT Austin, SUNY, and Waterloo have all been on the track. Iowa's battery protection suffered a major last night; they believe a lightening strike sent a surge through their generator while they were equalizing. Illinois has been on and off the track all day and is currently off in the cold pits.

At the moment, we are approximately 70 laps into the event, are are in the lead, although Waterloo is trailing us closely about a lap back.


Still wishing for sunshine for you! Stay strong and race well.
