World Solar Challenge: Morning, Day 2

Here are the World Solar Challenge GPS positions as at 08:44 Monday October 19 (Darwin time) (Day 2).

Calculated road distances are approximate, based on interpolation between towns. The second road distance shown (in grey) is adjusted to compensate for GPS delays. Twente has just overtaken Nuon, but apparently not for long. See the tracker page for continued updates, and social media (Punch have just tweeted a video).

  1. What is that factor to compensate starting grid positions? Do the teams that start further down get time restored? That would reduce the importance of the Hot lap at Hidden Valley even more.

    • I’m not 100% certain, but that’s my interpretation of the regs. Yes, the Hot Lap isn’t really all that important, in my opinion.
