Day 2 of FSGP 2017

Zephyr waiting for a scrutineering station

The first few stages of FSGP went really well for CalSol, passing all static scruntineering stations with greens. This includes the daunting Electrical, Battery Protection System and Mechanical scrutineering tests. Making minor adjustments on-the-fly, the team managed to convert all yellows to greens within a short period of time.

The next challenge for the team will be the dynamics test. This includes braking and handling tests – tests which often make-or-break teams (literally). Zephyr will be required to maneuver around tight boundaries and a demanding braking test.

We wish everyone the best of luck with this phase!
