Day 3 at Shell Ecomarathon

Saturday brought a flurry of activity with trying to get Sting & Urbie through inspections. Long before the inspection site was open, both vehicles were in line. After passing all their inspections, the vehicles took a few test runs around the indoor track before the outdoor track was open.

Since all of Fridays outdoor practice sessions were canceled, none of the teams were able to drive the course until competition started. Because of being unfamiliar with the course, teams & spectators saw many early crashes on the course.
Both Sting & GLII made several successful runs on the outdoor track.

Urbie continued having mechanical problems which kept the team from performing as they had hoped on Saturday.
