As Wednesday comes to a close, only one team made it out to race today. Waterloo Hybrid was the only team to pass all of the inspections and hit the autocross track.
After struggling to lock all four wheels in the brake test, Waterloo finally pulled it off, despite problems with their gearbox. Running against the clock, the rushed the car over to the autocross track amid cheers and applause. Their first lap was plagued by issues with their gearbox, but they were able to complete a second lap, putting down a legal time that should give them first place in the event.
Unfortunately no other teams have been completely cleared to run, but there are a number of teams that are incredible close. The design finals are currently wrapping up, and tomorrow we are looking forward to a number of teams getting out for an endurance run.
