I set to drive to Birmingham once again to publicly showcase our newest solar car EVA for the first time! We were invited to the Composites Engineeing Show by Mouldlife and Group Gazechim to demonstrate the cool things you can build from composites. Arriving just before 5pm there wasn't a huge hassle with vehicles trying to get in the area and thus the whole offloading and setting the car up went very smoothly!
On Saturday 25th October 2014, we held our One Year To Go (OYTG) event which marked a year until our participation in the 2015 World Solar Challenge. Held at the Marshall Headquarters in Cambridge, the OYTG event was also a chance for CUER's sponsors, supporters, alumni and current members to gather for the unveiling of our 2014 car, EVA.
Last week saw the official beginning of the Summer Design Team. The week was spent learning all about the world of solar racing and CUER, so that the team would be up to speed and ready to start their own projects with confidence. The first few days were spent talking to established team members and watching documentaries that covered the key principles of solar racing.
