July 12th was a very exciting day for CalSol in many ways. Since we were coming down to the Peninsula to wrap up our registration, we decided to swing by Belmont to visit our awesome platinum sponsor, Volkswagen Electronics Research Lab!
We were so excited to be sharing our progress with the ERL! Our car had been driving perfectly this past weekend and our registration problem had been resolved! Unfortunately we have yet to wire our solar cells and our batteries were drained from all the testing this past weekend, we were unable to let the ERL employees take a little ride. The ERL employees ended up “taking a seat” in Impulse nonetheless. Don’t they look like they’re having fun in these pictures?
