...and we're back online, all systems are go!!!
You may remember some rumbling about my partecipation in my Univerhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifsity's team of Formula SAE or Formula Student, depending on the specific race you're referring to. Eventually the 2011 season didn't come together as we planned with pour results and poorer reliability, but we had one hell of a time! It also took a lot of energy and time from all the participants, but that didn't stop me from carry on my commitment for the 2012 season. In the shake up that revolutionize our team, with some people leaving and many more entereing the picture, I ended up being nominated the team leader for the 2012 season. Which means that from that moment on whatever has gone and will go wrong will be my own fault. Fair enough! :D
Just so you know it, that beastly black single seater is our Formula SAE entry for the 2011 season, the EVO XI, pictured by Mauro Terzi at this year Motorsport Expotech fair in Modena. The car was mainly developed by students which left the team at the end of the season, so we got to give them credits for this creation.
As As of now we are in the final stages of the design of our 2012 entry, code named EVO XII. In all honesty I never really liked that name and the memories of not-anymore-rally-connected Mitsubishis. I suppose we'll have to come up with something more intriguing.
Also enjoy the rest of the pictures I've taken myself, over the top ISO settings be damned...
