Well I due to my interests in mechanical and electrical engineering an such, in 2009 i was signed up to do statistics and logistics but i was then moved to navigator and car maintenance due to the need for navigators.
There fore this year when I found out there was going to be another car race I asked how can I get involved an I will hopefully get to drive this year, along with the other mechanical and electrical work that is yet to be done.
By the way, it was through Energy education Australians combined secondary schools team. below is this year car in its original un restored state.http://www.energy.edu.au/EEA_SolarCar-1.html#
So this is the reason for lack of robot progress in recent times
