WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The sun rises on a new era in racing at Purdue as the University unveils its latest solar car.
Work on the car, named Navitas, started more than a year ago.
Purdue Solar Racing President Zack Lapetina said the car has a lot of improvements over its predecessor, Celeritas. Most importantly, Lapetina said it's about 200 pounds lighter.
However, Navitas' true road test comes next week when team members will drive it for the first time. The Solar Racing Team has a couple of weeks to fine tune the car before it competes in the 2013 Shell Eco-marathon April 4-7 in Houston, Texas.
