Houston Recap


After a long 20 hr drive down to Houston, we finally pulled into the conference center where we would stay for the next 4 days. After unloading and struggling to put up tents, we started preparing for the next day's race.
After a picture of all of the participants, we headed back to finalize the cars and then pushed them out to the race start. We had a rough run the first day. Slipstream was not able to finish and GL2 finished one run to put us on the board and then had a bad spill in which the canopy was cracked and the body scratched.

After a long night of polishing out the canopy and with Dr. Z's expertise, the car looked awesome and was ready for the next day's race.
Slipstream was first that day to finish the race putting both cars on the board. After two days of racing, Slipstream with Michelle Doyle driving broke the school record and then GL2 also broke the current record with Jeff Oakley driving.
It was an awesome weekend the final mileage for the cars were:
GL2: over 1400, 4th
Slipstream: over 1200, 7th

The Next competition is in Michigan for SAE Supermileage, June 10 and 11.
