Day 2: Inspection Update

The inspection procedure is to go through a preliminary electrical inspection in order to ensure the safety of the mechanical inspectors. Then, teams moved on to mechanical and electrical inspection stations. Here are some up-to-date inspection updates:

  • There is a long line of teams looking to pass through preliminary electrical inspection. Several teams already passed yesterday, and Dartmouth just passed through.
  • 3 teams have passed mechanical inspection so far. This inspection is particularly difficult this year due to some rules changes implemented.
  • No teams have completed the full electrical inspection.

As teams pass through inspection, we’ll start to hear engines being turned on in preparation for the brake check, noise test, and tilt table.
