Yale Bulldogs Racing, Dartmouth Formula Hybrid, University of Vermont Aero, and Lawrence Tech Blue Devil Racing have all passed the inspections necessary for them to race. The tests are comprehensive, and include a mechanical inspection, electrical inspection, a tilt test, an egress test (to see how fast the drivers can exit the vehicle), a fuel test, and a braking test. After a team passes all of these tests they are cleared to race.
