World Solar Challenge: On to Tennant Creek

Here are the World Solar Challenge GPS positions as at 10:30 Monday October 19 (Darwin time) (Day 2).

Calculated road distances below are approximate, based on interpolation between towns. The second road distance shown (in grey) is adjusted to compensate for GPS delays. Twente have taken the lead, and are speeding down the road. Nuon have posted a video of one of the less glamorous support jobs – removing roadkill from the road. Team Arrow have gotten their GPS tracker to work, and are doing OK. The lead teams are closing in on Tennant Creek, and Michigan has made some excellent illustrated blog posts. See the tracker page for continued updates.
