CWRU Motorsports claims 1st Place Acceleration at Midnight Mayhem IX

CWRU Motorsports continued its recent run of success at the annual Midnight Mayhem competition held near Louisville in September. Model E was outfitted with a freshly tuned CVT and was able to take home first place in the acceleration event. This is the first time CWRU Motorsports has ever tallied a first place finish in any event.

Following the dynamic events the team prepared both Model E and Model C for the first ever six hour endurance race. Model E was making its first appearance at Louisville while Model C was returning for its third time to the historic Louisville stomping grounds. The team used the race to get its younger team members a taste of driving in a race environment. Thomas Filipovic, Clay Hamilton, Alex Kushner, Matthew Stewart, Owen Yang, and Tim Zhou were all able to complete laps of the tricky course as the race went late into the night. The team left excited for the new challenges and opportunities that will surely be encountered in the 2017-2018 season.
