Our best races to date, with improved aero package and new electronic mapping giving us 4 mph extra speed.
Cold and windy, but we love this circuit. Race 1 Gave us great hope as we appeared to have power left in the batteries at the end of the race and even completed an extra lap after the chequered flag.
Race 2, we changed the gear ratio to give us more speed and it did improve our lap times But it proved too much and we used all the power one corner short of the chequered flag and only completed the exact same milage as race one so we had found our V max.
A great chance to test the car and drivers and gain valuable data. Good lap times and reliability.
Since the days have started getting longer again we decided now, just before race season, would be the best time to test our car in race conditions. We took our car out at 6:45pm onto the tennis courts at our school and practised driving and driver changes. Recently, there has been an increase in members so this was some relaxed conditions to practise driving. After each driver, we practised our driver changers and achieved a full pit stop in just under 30 seconds. The team can’t wait for race season to begin and we’re all excited to start our new 2018 model.
For the past few weeks, our team has produced a rolling road. The reason for this is to test our car for 90 minutes to simulate a race. This will aid us to improve our car and make time to create a new 2018 car. We left the car to run for as long as possible and collected some data while it was running however in the end we ran the car for 1 hour but it lasted the full time. The data we have collected for this has informed us that the electronics is fully working therefore we will now be able to race in full conditions and compete while we create a new car.
