Apex: Apex is going strong this semester with all of their drivers at max carryover in at least one buggy! There seems to be heavy turnout for their team, and continued buggy enthusiasm.
CIA: CIA had a pretty easy weekend as well! Nothing much of note happened other than some alumni visits.
Fringe: Fringe seems to really be taking this semester slow and steady, with only two driver/buggy combos out on Saturday and one on Sunday. Rumor has it that we may be seeing a new Fringe buggy out on the course
PiKA: Other than having some big wheels on Raptor for the first time in years, nothing of note from PiKA this weekend.
SDC: Saturday was thankfully an easy day for SDC. They seem to be practicing raceday countdowns with Inferno, but nothing else too out of the ordinary. SDC’s Vanity had a tough day on Sunday, starting with some deer in their way and later clipping the bales and losing a left rear wheel.
SigEp: Saturday was a pretty uneventful day for SigEp. But early on in the day on Sunday, one of SigEp’s buggies braked for a deer near the Westinghouse pond. The buggy fishtailed but the driver and buggy were both fine, and continued the course after being checked out by EMS. They also seemed to have a missing transition flagger for their first few rolls of the day, but luckily other teams were able to hop in to help out.
SigNu: SigNu debuted their new buggy Jager this weekend! They were taking things slow on Saturday (and only had one roll around the course), but we are all excited to see them out in the coming weeks.
Spirit: Spirit was doing full hill 1’s this weekend! The first team to do so this semester.
