WSC: Camping Sunday night

The map above (click to zoom) shows raw GPS positions (teams have stopped for the night, so there is no movement to extrapolate). The table below shows team numbers, raw road distance from Darwin, class (or number of seats for Cruiser class), team name, and team social media links. For a live map of raw GPS data, see the official tracker. I look forward to another exciting day tomorrow!

Nuon overtakes Tokai on Day 1

  1. Good summaries!
    Despite the apparent tracker position Twente think they are in 4th place.
    So both Twente and Punch had their small issues they had to fix on the side of the road which explain some of the position changes. So far WSU and Nagoya doing better than we expected and Kogakuin and Aachen a bit less.
    Nuon report they are using a handle to tilt their array quicker than the competition at the control stops which has gained them some time.
    Twente apparently already had a close encounter with a kangaroo (not Punch’s) which they could just dodge by moving into the other lane.
    The battle of the mono-hulls so far is in favour of Tokai; maybe the weight advantage is more important than the array even though the very high temperatures today should have been better for the MJ-arrays.
    But it is still early; looking forward to another exciting day tomorrow.
