    Made it to Circuit Zolder

    September 21, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ 🌬 15 °C

    We shoot into the pits, say a quick hello and head up to catch the briefing. James is there, and Lance. Then Luke and Henry. And Holly, Matt and Brian. And now our Ardingly Solar Aussie team are finally together again!

    The car is worked on, it goes out for some very successful test runs getting up to 71kph, an important screwdriver is lost. Solar car goes on.

    John and I check into our hotel for the night and then I go with Philip to set up his tent. The hotel is much nicer than the tent and didn't have a zip which is now falling apart.

    Back to the pits, dinner is a fairly uninspiring, lukewarm burger and reheated pasta. I didn't eat much...

    The car goes out for more testing between 20.00 - 22.00. It's now being tried out in the dark, too. And then back to our hotel for a quick glass of wine before bed.
