Rick Wagoner checks out the Challenge-X competitors, click the image for more photos


As the year three competition for Challenge-X continued on Friday at the GM Proving Ground, GM Chairman Rick Wagoner stopped by to check out the activity. Wagoner toured the work area where students were working on their cars and had lunch with representatives of the teams.

Wagoner also drove the vehicles from the teams that won the first two years of the competition, the University of Waterloo and Virginia Tech. The competition is continuing until next Thursday when GM Vice-President of R&D Larry Burns will announce the winner at GM Headquarters in Detroit.
