Later to cross the Day 1 finish line were:

95: Apollo Solar Car Team (Facebook) – 9th, official time 6:49:51
15: ZHAW Solar Energy Racers (Facebook) – 11th, official time 7:07:04
256: Oregon State University (Twitter, Facebook) – 12th, official time 7:18:08

Not yet finished as at the time of this post were:

17: Illinois State University (Facebook) – 14th, official time 10:56:24
29: Eco Solar Breizh (Twitter, Facebook) – 13th, official time 9:45:00
90: Team Okinawa Solar Car Project (Twitter, Facebook) – did not race today, official time 19:08:06

Several of the trailing cars seem to have had their GPS trackers die, so it is unclear where 17 and 29 are right now (update: @SolarRacing_org reports that 17 and 29 are, sadly, trailering in – see also his end-of-day report).

Update: official end-of-day timings added in grey
