Gato del Sol III
2007-2010. One of the most noticeable things about Gato del Sol III (to someone who's seen Gato II and Gato III) is that both cars have an almost identical body. This is because Gato III actually uses the same body from Gato II. Due to a change in race regulations, drivers could no longer lay down and had to sit up at a minimum angle of 27 degrees. To accommodate this rule change, the team simply cut off the canopy, made a new one, and called it Gato del Sol III. Unfortunately, it's not nearly that easy.
A new chassis was built to avoid the short fatigue life of treated Aluminum and change the driver's seating angle. After observing Gato II for a few years and noting what could been done better, many small performance changes were made. Add in some more reliable electronics, make a new top carbon fiber piece, put it all together, and you get Gato del Sol III, the most successful solar racer to come from the state of Kentucky.
Gato del Sol III has been stripped of all parts, except for the chassis, and is currently residing in the Kentucky Science Center in Louisville, KY.
