The proof of pudding is in the eating – that was the right reason to start testing our eLi15 for the season 2015 last week after our weekly teammeeting. What has been just been a CAD model a few weeks ago, is now able to stand on it’s own wheels and is due to be optimized during the coming weeks.
Our validation plan requires weekly testing and impoving the car to ensure that the car and the new driver, Julia, who will steer the car for the first time this year, are ready for the competitions.
To sum up the first test in one single word: successful! The new steering concept has shown up to be more efficient/ direct than the seasons before. Also the new monocoque has shown a reduction in mass.
We are just a few points on the checklist away from presenting our car at the Roll-Out Event on March 26 2015 in front our supporters.
We hope to successfully continue the testing sessions every week which will lead to the official presentation of eLi15 at the Roll-Out event to celebrate and kick-start the 2015 season of competitions.
