Before any car races on the track, the vehicle must pass a series of technical inspections. University of Maryland racing team passed inspection. I had a chance to review the team's aerodynamic front and rear wings – impressive.
My husband David recorded some of the inspections so I can share with you.
Drivers must exit the vehicle in 5 seconds or less. You can almost feel the drivers heart pounding. Southern Polytechnic State University from Georgia shows you how it is done.
How long can your car hang on its side? Universidad Simon Bolivar from Venezula shows you in this video. Just when you think you are tilted enough, the driver must hold on - watch til the end.
These students love engineering and it shows. Marie
