WSC 2013: Wednesday night (1)

Tonight the leading Challenger Class cars in the World Solar Challenge are strung out along the road south of Coober Pedy en route to the stopwatch which marks the Finish of Timing at Angle Vale (from then on, speed is unimportant, and contestants simply have to reach the finish line). The order is: Nuon, Tokai, Twente, Stanford, Punch Powertrain, and Team Arrow (click on the map to go to the GPS tracker). Sadly, the University of Michigan team have reported a crash at Coober Pedy, caused by high winds, and Solar Energy Racers (15 on the map) are apparently also trailered. Tomorrow, the race leaders will have rain to contend with as well.

Jeroen Haringman at solarracing.org will also be posting his regular end-of-day recap soon, and I intend to do some more graphs when timing data is available.
