Battle Mountain High Prep Story

a Formula 1 car or Grand Prix racing motorcycle. Then, he created some kind of traction
The team is also doing some amazing things to save weight because it’s battery powered. The
lighter it is, the longer and faster it will run. He isn’t saying how any of this works because
it’s a Solar Roller race, after all, and someone has to win.
“It might as well be us,” he said smiling.
