Ups and Downs

The top of the car sits in the garage with the protective sheeting freshly peeled off. There's nothing like a brand new and shiny array.

SunStang experienced a rollercoaster of emotion throughout the third day of scrutineering. The team has now successfully completed 5 of the 10 stations and had partially completed another 3. However, these are easily fixed and won't pose too much of an issue. However, the team ran into battery and motor issues today and as such were not able to go through dynamic testing. The team is hoping to have these fixed tomorrow morning and be able to go through dynamic testing and be upgraded to green status for the final 5 stations.

Despite these pitfalls the team is still in good spirits and enjoying the competition. While disappointed to not be able to get on the track for the start of racing it is still very possible to be racing by the late afternoon or first thing tomorrow morning. 

Outside of scrutineering the team was able to see the track for the first time as we took part in the driver tour. For many of the team members this was the first time seeing the track and it was exciting to see how we'd truly be driving the same track as F1. With those thoughts still fresh in everyone's mind we are eagerly waiting to get back to the track tomorrow for another hard of work.
