We've had such a big month! The car traveled across the ocean with Schumacher Cargo, landed in Bremerhaven, Germany, and flew through customs. She traveled from Bremerhaven to Munich and then to Hockenheim just in time for Formula Student Germany.
The team followed and have been camping with the other teams at the Hockenheimring since Monday. We've successfully gone through Design, Cost, and Presentation. Tomorrow (Saturday, August 1) is Acceleration and Autocross, and Sunday, August 2 is Endurance!
Here is a schedule of events: https://www.formulastudent.de/schedule-fsg-2015/. Please be aware that all times are 6 hours ahead of Pittsburgh time!
If you are interested in watching us compete, Formula Student Germany has a live stream set up here: http://formulastudent.tv/

Thank you for supporting Pitt Formula SAE. Without our donors and sponsors, the team would not be in Germany right now. We thank you all for your continuous support and hope to make you proud. Hail to Pitt!
THANK YOU EVERYONE!!! Thanks to everyone who has helped us reach our goal!
We are still one week away from the end of the campaign, so donations will still be accepted throughout the week. If you haven't already made your gift, please do so by March 18.
Please remember that FSAE gets to use 100% of whatever is raised through the campaign. Any further donations will help fund our shipping and travel expenses to Germany. Excess donations will go toward helping to fund team member travel expenses, and transportation of the car within Germany.
Thank you again to our supporters! Let's keep this momentum going!
At $10 you are helping us toward our goal! Thank you!
