Tune in between 12–3pm for updates on the Endurance Event which has doubled in length for this year’s competition. Looks like it may warm up a bit by then!

Meanwhile, check out the news coverage from WMUR-TV that ran last night with this great quote from Adam Tallman of Lawrence Tech:

“I’m a fifth year senior and I’ve been working in the field for 3 years and I’ve learned more on this car than those 2 combined. It’s a wonderful, wonderful experience.”
