U of M Solar Car - Continuum

U of M Solar Car - Continuum

No, this is not about Toyota putting solar cells on a Prius.  In a prior life (read about a decade ago) I was a part of the University of Michigan Solar Car Team from 1997 to 1999 and had a great time taking part in two races across the country against other North American university teams.  This year the American Solar Challenge will have teams from North America and Europe compete in a rally-style race from Texas to Calgary, Alberta over ten days.  You can follow the progress of Continuum, Michigan’s entry (see picture), from the team’s blog as well as the race in general through the American Solar Challenge Rayce Blog. With gas prices where they are today, its always great to see the innovations teams bring to help their vehicles get the checkered flag.

Good Luck Continuum! Go Fast, go smooth, Go Blue!
