Our teams held high hopes this morning for a change in the forecast for inclement weather. Unfortunately there was little they could do as the rain tumbled down persistently throughout the day. There was not even a brief respite where cars could be tested on the track. It was a day of great frustration and all each team could do was fine tune their cars while they waited for the judges to scrutineer their designs ensuring compliance with the regulations.
While we waited for a break in the weather a number of students took advantage of a tour through the UNSW Tyree Energy Building by the Manager of the Design Assistance Division of the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energies, Rob Largent.
It was a real eye opener into the research and development happening at UNSW. The building itself was amazing and incorporated many innovations in renewable technologies.
