Hidden under a cloth of concealment lies a masterpiece of collaboration. A tour de force in which engineering study is meticulously put into practice. A moment that marks the beginning of Spring each year means a fresh new car design for the University of Guelph’s Gryphon Racing team, and this year’s car didn’t disappoint.
