2017 IREC Update:

Thank you to the astounding 110 teams who entered this year’s competition during the “on-time” window. Attached to this post you will find the complete list of teams and their assigned Team IDs. Teams are welcome to enter “late” into the competition as well, but (in the interest of fairness) they will not receive points for their entry form submission. Teams entering late into the competition should accompany their DropBox submission with an e-mail to the ESRA org box ( alerting us to check for the late entry. We could not be more excited about the level of interest the First Annual Spaceport America Cup is generating for the IREC and this inaugural year is sure to be something special!
