After many months of grappling with the complex world of the shipping industry our final container arrived at our workshop, with the help of BOC’s flatbed lorry, 5 days ahead of schedule. The shell and an assortment of boxes emerged undamaged much to the glee of everyone who had spent many long hours covered in epoxy and carbon fibre back home.
There had been concerns that our shipment would be quarantined for containing organic matter but our scrupulous cleaning ensured that we passed quarantine inspection in under 10 minutes, the fastest of any team so far. At least we’ve won at something!
Now that the whole car has arrived everyone is working hard to reattach the shell to the chassis ready for final on-road testing later next week.
