The team traveled to Michigan International Speedway last week to compete in the 2010 FSAE Competition. Overall the team did very well taking home a 24th overall finish. Highlights of the competition included a 12th place finish in acceleration, 7th place finish in Presentation and the completion of the endurance event; an event which nearly 50% of the FSAE teams cannot finish. The energy that rushed through the team as Car 71 completed it’s last lap in endurance was unbelievably satisfying. The team had intermittent technical problems following the acceleration event including a broken turnbuckle on the driveline and a worn brake over travel switch which ended up shutting the car off on our last lap of skidpad. With the combined efforts of members on the team, we were able to fix the problems promptly and effectively to get Car 71 back out and racing within 45 minutes.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us and allowed us to make it this far. We aim to bring home a top 10 overall finish at FSAE California starting June 16th. Keep tabs on the website as more pictures get posted as well as updates.
