P10 Anthelion


North American Solar Challenge 2008 was a fantastic experience, and the whole team deserves commendation for their hard work at the qualifying track and on the race itself. We experienced many problems along the way, but in the end everyone pulled together and showed what the team is really made of. I am looking forward to seeing the team perform again in NASC 2010 – only perhaps next time I’d hope for fewer problems!
