Shell Eco-Marathon Running Diary: Day 1

March 26, 2012

Following an all day and all night build session, the vehicle was ready for the 10am media send off event. The media turn out was awesome!  A big thank you all the different stations and newspapers that were able to attend. Our team and sponsors really appreciate the coverage. Following some quick interviews and a vehicle drive demo the car was brought back into the shop and a day of finishing touches began.

Packing for the trip was started, however, getting everything organized to be loaded into the trailer and getting the car ready to travel would take a couple more hours next morning.
