Solar Car (Afterburner)

Solar Car (Afterburner)

A photo of the Afterburner, the solar car entered by the joint UC Berkeley/Stanford Solar Car teams in SunRayce 1997. The car finished 3rd in Sunrayce 97, a cross-country solar car race that started in Indianopolis, IN and ended in Colardo Springs, CO. The car finished with an average speed of 42.03 miles per hour. After the inital charge before the race, the batteries were recharged only by the sun. It went on to race at Suzuka, Japan later that summer. I worked on the electrical systems of the car. More photos and details will be posted later.
