WSC: Another updated calendar

Here again is an updated calendar for the World Solar Challenge. Weather (from www.accuweather.com) is for Darwin up until the 18th, and then for the places indicated. Long-range forecasts are not particularly reliable, but it’s beginning to seem unlikely that the race will be six sunny days in a row.

And the race is getting closer: the WSC opens their Darwin HQ tomorrow!

  1. Interesting to see how the forecasted sunny weather in the first part of the race can be combined with the higher speed limits in Northern Territory and even a stretch of 200 or 276 kms of unlimited speed on the Stuart Highway (since feb 2014). Will it pay off to race (much) faster in the sun and avoid more of the clouds and even rain on day 5 and 6?
    If you can fully charge again with your concentrators in the evening and morning, despite the new charging box rules . . . . .
