Last week the Red Team's vehicle suffered severe damage after flipping over when taking a turn too fast, and none of the vehicles attempting to qualify on Monday made it through the obstacle course. The Blue Team's autonomous motorcycle can barely go 500 feet before falling over.
It doesn't look like this is going to be a cakewalk.
The plan is to head out to Barstow Friday night, drink heavily, then drag myself to the starting line early Saturday morning.
There will be live video of the start available via satellite.Posted by jjwiseman at March 10, 2004 07:53 AM
