2017 University of Michigan solarcar

here's a peek inside a university World Solar Challenge team experience.
CAR and DRIVER reported the NOVUM to be 'below Cd 0.10'. A 'Lange' car without truncation, or greenhouse, with a PV array and canopy glommed on. Articulated front wheel skirts.

Is an enclosed windowed view in the regulations? I'd throw cameras on there and have the driver go prone, or at least lay completely flat.

Yep. Lay on your back, with head propped up enough to see through a four-inch ( 101.6mm ) gap between your knees.
Lot's of that goin' on.

Looks like a new member refreshed an old thread, gotta say glad he/she did.

The new car puts a smile on my face, kind of like a puppy does.

Yes, it looks like from the future. Do you think something like this will be on the road in 2060?

Almost 40 years from now?

Lets hope it happens sooner than that, or I won't live long enough to see it.
