The team leader shared the biggest challenges faced in the international competitions and the results achieved: “We are very proud to be the first team, in the Iberian Peninsula, that has developed a complete prototype”. João Silva took the opportunity to talk about the improvements that have been made in SR01 and the upcoming competitions to be held in Groningen, Leeuwarden and Monaco. “Let’s turn this into a 16-day journey where we will give our best”, he reiterated.

Luís Santos invited Dinis Rodrigues, the next team leader, to go on stage to help him unveil SR01. According to Dinis Rodrigues, these activities are very important because “we learn with each other the art of doing engineering”. “I am sure that we will continue to innovate as much as we can”, said Dinis Rodrigues.
