At the ASC 2018 awards ceremony, Dick Roberto’s retirement as the Head Mechanical Inspector was announced. We thanked Dick for his years of service to the American Solar Challenge and Formula Sun Grand Prix events.
Through a separate process, Dick Roberto also was recognized with the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award for his long history with solar car events, which began in 1990 as an advisor to the Cal State LA team.
We are pleased to announce Dick will be returning for FSGP 2019 as a Mechanical Inspector, supporting the new Head Mechanical Inspector, Brian Call, as the teams go through scrutineering in Austin, TX. We look forward to having him as part of the staff for yet another solar car event!
