World Solar Challenge: battle for the lead

The World Solar Challenge is on! Here are the race positions as at 11:39 Sunday October 18 (Darwin time). Punch Powertrain and Michigan are dueling for the lead.

Calculated road distances are approximate, and are mostly too low due to GPS update delays. See the tracker page for continued updates. Team 27 (RVCE) has been a late withdrawal. Team 26 (Durham) is trailering to Katherine rather than racing, due to technical difficulties.
