WELCOME to those that saw the announcement of this team website during the CTN CitiTV 19 coverage of the Ann Arbor Art Fair.

Note that the 2008 edition of the world's longest solar car race is about to begin stage 3. The race website is americansolarchallenge.org but as you can see, this blog is a wonderful way to follow the "rayce".

Is Michigan only about 20+ minutes ahead. From previous posts here it looked like Michigan was over an hour ahead. Did Michigan receive penalty minutes on the second leg
