The Race Operations Team manages any vehicle testing while developing and optimizing race strategy. We build simple and complex simulations factoring in solar insolation, cloud-cover, hills, winds, temperature, and any other factors that may impact the efficiency of the solar vehicle. During race planning, we coordinate the team and resources to the race, secure accommodations, and ensure all race requirements are adhered to.
