Friends and Family of the UW Formula Motorsports Team,
Our recent quotes for shipping and the fact that we need to pay up front have brought us to confront the reality that we do not have enough money to compete in FSG as we sit right now. We were $10,000 short on our fundraising goal, and in combination with an increase in shipping prices we must call on your support once again.
Despite the present obstacles, the team is extremely motivated to get the cars to FSG for the team's last year of building a combustion car, no matter what it takes. A few of the proposed ideas include:
• Fully disassemble the car and take it piece by piece in carry on and checked luggage. • Donating plasma (many team members have already started with donations!). • Contacting the US Air Force (Literally would require an act of congress). • Taking one member's 50' sail boat
While some of the options outlined above are intriguing to say the least, we've decided that the best course of action is to raise a large amount of cash in a very short period of time. As such, if you could please fill out the linked survey before Monday, May 29th to help us plan accordingly we would greatly appreciate it. Simply put, we want to know to what extent we can count on you to help us get to FSG.
As always we appreciate your incredible support. Thank you for your help thus far!!
Big thank you to all our Alumni who attend last night's Mock Design Review!
The reliability and increased performance of our electric car this year is the direct result of our extremely motivated eTrain team!
