Heavy clouds and intermittent light rain prevented teams from doing much, if any, charging this morning, but by 9:00 a.m. things had improved enough to take the event group photo on the symbolic brick strip.
When the photo session was over hints of blue began to appear in the sky, and by the 10 a.m. start time the sun managed to break through and give the cars a boost.
Last night Justin Dobrynski replaced S&T's battery protection circuit, and there was still a blown fuse to deal with before the Miners finally got on the track some 15 minutes behind the starting group. SMVII's debut didn't go well at all, as the car broke down at the first turn. You can see the official race standings here but it doesn’t look good for the team from Rolla.
We still have a day and a half to go, so stay tuned to see how this works out.
