The Team’s semi trailer and crate returned to Ann Arbor late last month from it’s long journey back from Australia. Since its return, team members have been emptying equipment out of the semi and using some of it to finish work on a mule car project. Infinium has been brought into the Team’s workspace where race crew members who participated in the World Solar Challenge last fall have been helping new members to become acquainted with the car and its subsystems.
A Race Committee has been selected to head the race preparation efforts as the Executive Committee elected for the 2011 project will continue focusing on designs for the next Michigan Solar Car. Team members from every division have applied to be part of the race crew heading to the American Solar Challenge this coming June. Race crew member selections are expected to be announced in the next couple of weeks.
