Fall Testing

Always looking to get ahead in driver preparation, we spent some time over the past couple of weeks shaking in Car 51 with potential new drivers. This is very important this year as Powertrain and Driving Team Leader Andy Gryczan is graduating soon and may not be able to pilot a race car during the 2009 Formula SAE series. Thankfully, the turbulent Michigan weather cooperated for us for a few days; allowing many of Car 51's team to obtain some much needed seat time. The team would like to extend a special thanks to Scott Rancor and the MSU Pavilion for allowing us to use one of their large lots for testing. Below are some pictures from the testing sessions.
