Spring Break

CalSol went out to the RFS all through spring break to work on the car. The team worked on getting the car ready for presenting this year at Cal Day. We worked on attaching the shell to the chassis snugly and designing a new brake pedal. Once the shell attachment is finalized we will attach the solar cells. As you can see, our trailer was getting a bit rusty so we sanded it down and worked on a new coat of paint.

The team also has a new website layout. I hope you enjoy it.

Continuing Sponsors

We’d just like to stop for a moment to thank all of our continuing sponsors. Without them, there would be no solar car!Most recently, we had the pleasure of working with Advanced Circuits (www.4pcb.com) again to produce some final, critical circuitboards. AC has always been a dependable source of high-quality PCBs in the past, and we look forward to working with them again in the future. 

We’d also like to thank Agilent Technologies, the premier measurement company, for their monetary contributions to the team.

And a big “Thank You” to Lockheed Martin, global security and IT company, for their support.    Such donations are crucial to the success of the team.

CalSol is excited for its big race coming up this June, and we’re planning a new car for this coming year. If you or your company would be interested in sponsoring the Berkeley solar car, please don’t hesitate to contact us!   Check our “Sponsors” page for a chart listing the benefits of different levels of sponsorship (besides, of course, that warm fuzzy feeling you get from helping out college students ). We also have an “Adopt-a-Cell” program, where individuals or families can adopt solar cells in their name and help us get to the race.

Again, thanks to all of these generous sponsors, and we hope to see some of you in Texas!
