So come join us and bring your F1TENTH car if you have one! We’ll have a few spares but not enough for everyone so please check out https://f1tenth.org if you want to put your own together.

Note: There will be a sign-up link for the actual hack-a-thon event which we will post very soon just to make sure we don’t overrun CircuitLaunch. Keep an eye on this thread for the link.

Josh, I’d love to do the hackathon if one of the loaner F1Tenth cars are available. Please let me know and I can get the time off work. Thank you.

There will be about 5 cars available for testing but they will likely have to be shared.
