First day of race

We're ended our race day in McAlister, Texas.
It was mainly a battery race today as the weather was extremely bad for solar car racing.

I had to change a battery module. then one of the inspectors saw that our hydraulic brake system did not comply with the regulations even though we initially passed all the inspections last week.
We had to spend 3 hours on the racing clock to fix it even though mechanical issues like this should have been picked up during the inspection period and not during the race.

Strategy has been difficult due to the lack of experience and understanding of the overall electrical load characteristic of the solar car.

Learnt a lot today which will be implemented tomorrow and hopefully get us to our next stage stop.
