Presenting VALKYRIE

Hello everybody!

The team is making good progress on the next car and is finalizing suspension designs, aerodynamic body shapes, and designing electrical boards. To make the car even more bada** though, we finally decided on a name. Our next solar car has been deemed....VALKYRIE! According to Norse mythology, Valkyrie directly interprets to "chooser of the slain". She is one of several female figures who decides those that live in battle and those who die. No better use of the name than in solar car races.

With awesome mythology in our pocket, the aerodynamics team has also performed some simulations of the body shape using Ansys.

 Valkyrie is lookin better and better!
