On December 5th, Solar Miner IV went to Miami, Florida to film a commercial for the Chevy Aveo. Two team members, Chris Pieper and myself, and two advisors, Bob Phelan and John Tyler, accompanied the car to the shoot. The commercial will only be aired in Europe, so I guess you could say that the solar car team is now an international star! See Photos for some pictures of the car and stuff from the set. Chris and I will post our own personal account on that page a little later.
