We've been having problems with uploading videos and pictures to the blog. We're so sorry about it.

On a better note, we won day 3 in our division and are currently in 3rd place overall. The results are posted daily on the Hunt Winston Solar Car Challenge website. There's also pictures being posted.

Please remember to check the twitter. We're updating that fairly quickly. The name is SolarKnightsGo.

Wish us luck,

Finally having time to post!


We're so sorry that there hasn't been any blog updates in the last few days. We've been really busy racing and getting everything ready for the next day of racing. Today is our rest day so it gave us some time to update the blog. Well to catch you up, we won the second day of racing. We're third overall in the whole race! It's been incredibly fun and we've met so many people. I'm going to be making a post with pictures soon so keep checking up.

Well wish us luck,
Solar Knights

We've arrived!


We arrived in Fort Worth around 7 pm central time. Some teams were already here. Tomorrow's registration and first day of scrutineering. We can't wait to start this race! It's gonna be awesome. We'll post picture tomorrow. We didn't really do much today. We had 12 hours of uneventful driving. The video blog is coming soon.

Wish us luck,

First Day Recap


So we're all sitting around now doing our individual tasks. We're going to act as if tomorrow is an actual day of racing so we're all getting our responsibilities in order. We had a pretty good day, minus the minor difficulty we experienced when we noticed that one of the tires in the van was bulging. We changed the tire in 20 minutes and got back on the road. We had a good dinner, including some riddles that challenged our minds. Here are some pictures of the day:

On the road!

Texas here we come! We departed this morning at 5:45. We had lunch in Gainesville, Jason and Daniella's new home. We're currently on I-10 heading towards Tallahassee. We plan on reaching Mobile, Al around 5 this afternoon. Pictures and a video will be posted later.

Wish us luck,
Solar Knights

We had a very busy day!


We're working very hard on our car. Yesterday, we worked all day and then had a parent meeting. We're only two weeks away! The array is almost done and now we're working on the auxilliary wiring. We'll be road testing in the Everglades next Tuesday.

Here are some pictures:
