It was a tough week in Austria for the team, as we were unable to compete in Acceleration or Skidpad due to mechanical issues, but we worked to get the car out for the four Autocross runs.

During Friday's Endurance, the car was running very well for 14 laps until a mechanical failure prevented the car from finishing the event. After repairs are made, we plan on testing before FSG in Hockenheim next week!

Thank you to The University of Akron, Schaeffler, Goodyear Racing, and all of our sponsors and supporters that make our international travel possible.
