World Solar Challenge: Morning, Day 4

Here are the World Solar Challenge GPS positions as at 08:54 Wednesday October 21 (Darwin time) – Day 4 of the race.

Calculated road distances below are approximate, based on interpolation between the known road distances to control stops. The second road distance shown (in grey) is adjusted to compensate for GPS delays. Current big news is the Punch penalty (see their social media for their side of the story) and the Cruiser class rules, which were apparently being tweaked last night. See the tracker page, timing board, and social media for continued updates.

  1. Are there any more details available about the Cruiser class rules tweak? I haven’t found any mention about it yet, other than here.
