Where does the name CHIPS Adventure come from?
The name "Chips" originates from the day-to-day life of its members, since in the beginning all the members were computer scientists and thanks to computer science as a profession the team was generated.
From a computer point of view, a CHIPS is an integrated circuit, specially designed to fulfill a certain job, generally a chip works with others, exchanging information in order to fulfill a larger task, which by itself cannot fulfill. As an analogy each of the team members "works" supports and helps others to together achieve a common goal. The objective varies constantly from one race to another, during the race and also outside of it.
