WSC: Heading to Katherine

Heading to Katherine, Tokai has taken the lead in their bullet car. If they don’t accidentally roll it, they may have won this race already. Nuon, Punch, Western Sydney, and Michigan follow.

The map above (click to zoom) shows GPS positions extrapolated using GPS time lag and the average speed since the start of the race (i.e. it’s a best guess for the true position of the car at the indicated time). The table below shows team numbers, raw road distance from Darwin (calculated using a route provided by Sasha Zbrozek), average speed, extrapolated road distance, 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.
