SAE Automotive Engineering International Article Update

Earlier we had posted an article that was published in SAE's Automotive Engineering International magazine and the only only way to view it was to go to another website or download the pdf. A cool little website was found that allows you to embed pdf and other documents inside the current web page. Below is the original article quoted and the new pdf format.

Congradulations Team! The Cal Poly Supermileage Team made it into the August 2006 issue of SAE's Automotive Engineering International magazine. The article is under the "Tech Briefs" section of the August issue.

Here is a link to the online version of the magazine.

Cal Poly at the NASCAR Auto Club 500

Last weekend was a great week for the Cal Poly Supermileage team. Being last years Shell Eco-marathon Americas winner, Shell invited the team to the NASCAR Auto Club 500 race at the California Speedway in Fontana, CA. Friday was spent doing a press conference and photo shoot with the 2007 Daytona 500 winner, Shell sponsored, No. 29, Kevin Harvick. Below is a link to the album of some pictures that we took of the photo shoot and press conference.

Shell Photoshoot

Shell was also kind enough to invite us to the actual Spring Cup race on Sunday. We received a tour of the garages, track and the pits before the race and we got to see the race from fully catered box seats. The race was delayed due to rain, however, but we still had a blast. Below is a link to the race day gallery.
