Dartmouth Formula Racing took home first place this past May at the Formula Hybrid intercollegiate competition in Louden, NH. This is a late update, because I have been updating the Formula Hybrid blog and the Dartmouth Formula Racing Twitter. Congratulations to the 2013 team members! We are very excited for the 2013-2014 build, stay tuned for shop updates!
DFR has passed the mechanical, electrical, tilt, and braking tests and is ready to race. There was some minor trouble with the rain test, but luckily there isn't a cloud in the sky! Darren, Jose, Kodiak, Chris and Callen are all cleared to drive. Chris will kick it off with the acceleration run; she is by FAR the lightest driver. Then Jose will shred some rubber in the autocross event. Check the twitter and the FH blog for LIVE updates!
This week is the competition! Check out the twitter for live updates. After some minor issues and Monday night fixing them, the DFR team passed the electrical inspection! Unfortunately further problems were encountered with the rain test and the battery boxes filling with water, but the team is working on fixing the car and getting it ready to race. Acceleration run and autocross race tomorrow! Stay tuned and follow the twitter for updates! I'll be tweeting
