Two weeks to go folks!!
Long range forecast as of now calls for 56* with a 20% chance of rain. I know it'll change 96 times before then, but it's nice to see it on the outlook!

One week out! Per Bob's email a few days ago, I'm going navigator-less this year--I can save the weight of an extra person, which means my car will be ~450 lbs lighter this year than last. That should help on the back straight hill. I calculated my target speeds for each section of the track a few weeks ago; I'm hoping to better last year's 62.8 mpg, since I was averaging way over 45 mph.

Nice seeing you all today! For those who are wondering how we did--the weather did not cooperate. 32 degrees F, snowing/sleeting the whole time we were on track, and standing slush/water didn't help anyone's mileage. Three of us Ecomodders made it out, with (correct me if I'm wrong, guys!) the following results:

brucepick (1st gen Insight) - 63.4 mpg
UltArc (C6 Corvette) - 34.7 mpg
Vman455 (3rd gen Prius) - 59.7 mpg

I was happy to beat the Toyota sales rep in a 2019 Prius AWD, who got 54.5 mpg. Take that, Gen 4!

Lined up on track and ready to go:



After all was said and done:

I was really bummed that I wasn't going to make it this year AND then I saw the weather!!! I thought last year's snow was bad.

Good job to all the competitors!
