Greetings All,It is with great excitement that I am announcing the successful attempt to drive our electric miata from school campus to Appalachian State University! This is a 62 mile round trip that requires a challenging climb to 3333 feet at grades from 6%-8%. The weather was not on our side with wind gusts over 40 mph and dropping temperatures upon our return to near freezing. While in Boone Team Captain Caleb presented our Miata to the Solar Vehicle Team of Appalachian State University.
As we maneuvered through campus I had tears of joy remembering all the students that have contributed to this accomplishment dating back to 2007. While no roses or podiums existed at the finish line I could not be more proud of what all the team members, volunteers, sponsors and school system have accomplished. THANK YOU volunteers, sponsors, and Wilkes County school System! You made this a reality.
