WSC 2013: Wednesday night (3)

Based on the World Solar Challenge race graph I just posted, I’m estimating the following finish times tomorrow (with other cars arriving Friday):

  • Nuon: 10:00 (11:00 Adelaide time)
  • Tokai: 10:30 (11:30 Adelaide time)
  • Twente: 13:30 (14:30 Adelaide time)
  • Stanford: 13:30 (14:30 Adelaide time)
  • Punch Powertrain/KU Leuven: 15:30 (16:30 Adelaide time)

Third place will be a battle! Getting to the official finish line in the middle of the city will take extra time, and of course anything might still happen on the road.

Solar Team Twente have again uploaded a beautifully shot (Dutch) daily recap, which shows (among other things) the wind and the gathering clouds today:

  1. really interested in your updated graph with the final results. It seems the dutch can handle bad weather better then their competitors.

    • Thank you! I’ve just posted the latest graph here — or was that what you were referring to? I can’t speak for all the teams, but the team from Twente at least has very thoroughly incorporated weather advice in their strategy planning, as this video shows.
