A large group of the UWAM team arrived to the striking cold Melbourne weather this morning. A far reach from our familiar UWA Lab environment, the team carried with it an equally eager nervousness and excitement for the following 7 days. With the rest of the team and our recently running 2013 car inbound to our new home for the next stretch of the project, we have been hurrying around to prepare the best we can for the week ahead of us.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be spent testing, tweaking and finalising the car. Then we are off to comp on Thursday for to register and set up. Friday will be an eventful day with Design, Presentation and Cost report events. Friday we will be taking the car through Accel, and Skid pan. Saturday and Sunday we will see the team committing their best efforts in Autocross and Endurance, as well as the technical inspections to pass. Pending no catastrophes, Saturday will bring the first of the dynamic events with the team competing in the Acceleration and Skid Pan event in the morning, and Autocross event in the afternoon. Sunday will see our drivers take to track for the Endurance event.
We will be keeping you up to date all throughout the week and look forward to catching up when we return from Melbourne to thank you and share more of our experiences with you.
