And we are all GREEN!

CalSol ended Day 2 with a high, successfully passing all scrutineering tests with greens. This included passing the dynamics test like the slalom test below:

Passing these tests makes us track eligible for the circuit segment of FSGP on Thursday.

Free of any tests on Day 3 (Wednesday), we seized the opportunity to prepare ourselves for the next 3 days of grueling circuit racing.

At the crack of dawn, the early crew set up and tested the solar array. Potentially spending up to 24 hours on the track over the next 3 days, having a reliable and efficient solar array is crucial for success at the race.

After the daily team meeting, the team went for a road test at the COTA facility, further simulating race conditions in the scorching heat.

With all these preparations, the team is hyped up for the the first day of circuit racing tomorrow. GO BEARS!
