Last weekend we received a generous donation of batteries for the Baker from Chris Spano of Interstate Batteries!

Chris donated the 10 six volt batteries for the project to get the vehicle running for the Aerodrome’s 2013 season. At 250 amp-hours per battery, the car should be able to operate at full speed for three hours.
