Wednesday afternoon: The team scrambles to finish the car for the final tech inspection; as they worked, they were surrounded by press, competition officials, and co-competitors who expressed their amazement at the speed, efficiency, and accuracy of the build, a testament to Joe's lean/agile/scrum model.
Wednesday, 4:55 p.m.: The team proceeds toward final inspection. As they rolled the car out of the garage toward the inspection bay, the entire place erupted in applause, with co-competitors even helping push the car. Team WIKISPEED had captured everyone's hearts. Tweeted and retweeted throughout Wednesday and Thursday was the message @ZAPalias: Congratulates team @WIKISPEED for a heroic display of teamwork, makes us proud to be part of @progautoxp.
Wednesday evening: A few of our dedicated team members, exhausted but proud, mug for the camera after final inspection.
