World Solar Challenge: dynamic scrutineering

The table below shows the lap times and speeds (assuming a 2,870 m track) for the World Solar Challenge cars in dynamic scrutineering. These times are now final.

The table also has links to photos and to team social media. The fifth column of the table shows the car class (or, for Cruisers, the number of seats). For more detailed information about the teams, see my annotated teams list. For comparison, the chart (click to zoom) shows 2015 lap speeds. It can be seen that several teams are running substantially slower than in 2015, although Singapore and Nagoya are a lot faster. Overall, speeds are about 93% of 2015 speeds for Challengers, and 90% for Cruisers (qualifying with all passengers aboard seems to have slowed Cruisers down):
