So, I’m part of an electric car team, and we’ve raced at the Connecticut Electrathon since last spring. Instead of using the car we made from a crappy kit last year (it cost about $1,500 and NOTHING fit, almost everything had to be modified), the “Varsity” team I’m on is going to build a new car from scratch. We’ve got a working design for everything, and it should turn out awesomely - the problem is, it is estimated to cost about $5,000.
Girl look at that body.
I WORK OUT.
So on Friday after school, two of the guys from the Varsity team and I went to Ingelheim Automotive in Danbury CT, asking for a sponsorship.
And guess what - we got one.
To be precise, a $3,000 sponsorship.
This is enough money to make the chassis, as well as all the mechanical bits (motor, braking system, wheels, etc.)
So FUCK YES. We’re going to order what we need on our next meeting on Tuesday, and hopefully start working on cutting the aluminum for the chassis in a few weeks!
We were expecting a $100 sponsorship or something, not $3,000. THANK YOU INGELHEIM AUTOMOTIVE!
