February Grand Prix Update!

Phil Helps

Hello SWEeple!

What’s fast, has four wheels, and gets everybody’s attention? That’s right, you guessed it, our new Grand Prix cart! We have a whole new shiny red chassis for our cart and it is B-E-A-U-tiful! Thanks to our sponsor Corning, it’s out with the old and in with the new.

February has been a busy month for us. we’ve taken everything off the old cart and are quickly adding to and fixing up the new one to get it ready for the race in April.We still have lots to do, but things are moving along very quickly thanks to our wonderful build team and the help of some great individuals. Last week we had Phil Goginsky come in and help us start to put together our new drive train! Phil has been helping build Grand Prix carts for over 10 years! We are so fortunate to have him around to mentor us.

Coming up in March we will have tech inspections. These are put in place by the university to make sure that all the safety requirements are met, and that all the carts are fair. Wouldn’t want anyone getting hurt out there!

Well, that’s all the goodies I got for you today! Until next time,
