The post-lunch session was broken into two section based on the morning round-robin racing. Our Year 7 car failed to make the top 8 and therefore raced in the Plate Finals while the Year 8 car qualified easily for the quarter finals.
Here are the two Plate races our Year 7 car participated in. Overall they finished 11th for this year’s Sunsprint. A terrific effort for these wonderful young men.
Our Year 8 car was successful in their Quarter Final. The races were tight with a little controversy prior to Race 3 where the opposition allowed some dry ice to spill on their vehicle prior to the start. Apparently dry ice is not permitted under the regulations! The boys were fortunate to win this section as both cars were very close in terms of speed. We felt the dry ice falling on their solar panels may have given us a slight edge in the last race.
This was the false start with the dry ice.
