After much thought and consideration, Michigan State Solar Car has decided to withdraw from the 2020 Formula Sun Grand Prix competition. With the ongoing concerns with COVID-19, we wish to put the health and safety of our members and community first and practice social distancing. Moving forward we will also be adapting to a more virtual setting for the school year and limit our time and numbers in the shop. We are missing our fellow solar racing friends so much, and we wish those competing in FSGP 2020 the best of luck. Stay safe and go rayce!
