Great Moonbuggy Race MB03 Construction Updates

MB03 has completed its race in Huntsville. Listed below are the latest updates.

Update 12: 9 April 2009

Here is CJOH interview that was uplinked from the race last Friday. Also, photos from the race have been uploaded to the image gallery.


Update 11: 7 April 2009

Here is the GMBR story that aired on Daily Planet last night... (Stick around for the story that follows on the recent North Korean Taepodong-2 launch, too.)


Update 10: 5 April 2009

Of the 38 teams that competed, Carleton University placed 12th out of 19 teams that posted a valid race time. (UPDATE: Our official ranking, however, was 16th out of 16, due to the 20 min. time penalty for pushing.) There were 13 teams that did not complete the course. Brian Rutkay has assembled a breakdown of the Weekend's results based on information from the official Twitter stream. Bear in mind that these are not the official results and don't take into account time penalties incurred.
