Team members continue to leapfrog from class to the race car shop each day to work on Car 12. In case some of you aren’t familiar with the average work schedule of an MSU Formula SAE Team member, it goes something like this:
Monday, 5-6 pm: arrive at shop
Monday, 12-3 am: leave shop, barely still awake
Tuesday: Repeat Monday’s schedule
Wednesday: Repeat Monday’s schedule, include General Team Meeting at 7 pm
Thursday: Repeat Monday’s schedule
Friday: Repeat Monday’s schedule
Saturday, 10 am: arrive at shop
Saturday: 10 pm-3 am: leave shop, barely still awake
Sunday, 10 am: Team Leader’s meeting
Sunday, 11 am: fabrication starts
Sunday, 10 pm-3 am: leave shop, barely still awake
Additionally, all procurement of supplies and sponsorship relations, plus any shipping and receiving of outsourced components, are handled during business hours each weekday.
Here are a few pictures of some of the fabrication that has taken place during these hours and more. Enjoy!
