The team traveled to Austin, Texas for the American Solar Challenge this past summer advancing through the first round but stopped short of the open road race due to mechanical difficulties. The team is now looking towards the World Solar Challenge 2015 in Australia next and will be building a four-wheeled vehicle for the race.
