Is it alright to get some clarity on the rules here?

We have several questions. Mr. Danny White answers are in RED

  1. How many karts will race at a time? Heats will be set to a maximum of 10 karts, final to be determined.
  2. How strict is the 30mph speed requirement? Average or straight portions only? We requested a minimum speed to keep teams from assuming it is a "Challenge" event. It is not, it is a race. We will request a 30mph average, we will see once we get moving if that is a reality. If you cannot keep up, you will not be able to win. First across the finish line wins.
  3. Will there be barriers all around the course? Turns/straight? Yes
  4. Is there a list of schools who have committed? Is there a way to contact them? John Hopkins University, Georgia Tech, Anderson University, University of Michigan - Dearborn, University of Wisconsin - Madison, Kennesaw State, Kettering, Purdue University - 3 karts. We do not have permission to share their contact info at this time.

Just for clarification, does this mean that there will be barriers on both sides around the entire track? If so, will this be the case for the practice runs?

It is our plan to line the entrie track inside and out with barriers. Depending on the size of the track, this could mean complete barrier wall or gaps as large as 15 to 20 feet. Pit in and grid out would be open as well.

As an update, I have been told that the track for autonomous will have no breaks in the barriers. I apologize for any concern this may have caused.

Is the http://www.evgrandprix.org/autonomous web page broken? It does not seem to load correctly?

I will check to see if they were doing maintenance on it yesterday, the above link works correctly now.

Aloha, maybe it is because we are all the way out here in the Pacific. Just retried and the "autonomous" link still only puts up a part of the page and stop... Checked everything out on our side and all other sites and downloads are fine... we have a 100mb + internet connection. Mahalo Gary
