West Hills Carstar painted the OSU solar car as a donation to the cause.
We also loaned the battery pack they are using of A123 batteries. I wish we
could help them out more.
I think it is great that we have an entry from Oregon. I think they are the
only one from the Northwest.
They are under the gun to get it done in time. I hope they do well.

Several of us have chipped (money and other help) in already for the OSU
solar racing team.
We sometimes have supported OSU racing teams in the past, but not so far
This is just a quick note to let everyone know that we have the solar
car up and running! I have attached pictures to this email so you can
all see how beautiful it has turned out. We will be leaving for our
first race tomorrow: the 2008 North American Solar Challenge
<http://www.americansolarchallenge.org>). The race is from Dallas, TX
to Calgary, Alberta from July 13^th to July 22^nd . We have 10 days to
drive 2400 miles.
Our team is still in need of funding. We are preparing to spend about
$5,000 in gas for the support vehicles and still have more charges on
top of that for food and any unanticipated spare parts for the car. If
you or anyone you know is able to fund this project, please let us
know. You can send an email to OSUSVT at gmail.com
<mailto:OSUSVT at gmail.com> and mail checks to:
OSU Solar Vehicle Team
103 Memorial Union Box #492
Oregon State University
Corvallis, OR 97331
We appreciate all of the help and support that we have received from the
community and industry. Thank you all!
