WSC: South from Katherine

Heading south from Katherine to Daly Waters, Nuon has regained the lead (it’s the World Solar Challenge; anything can happen). Cars 49 (Siam Tech) and 53 (Mississippi Choctaw) seem to have broken GPS units, but the Mississippi Choctaw kids arrived in Katherine at 14:36:30.

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.

Tokai, then Nuon, then Punch, then WSU at the Katherine control stop

  1. Nuon had a facebook live session at the control stop showing protocol of getting out of the cars. WSU and Tokai losing some serious time with getting out of their car and registering at the time desk. Tokai taking at least 5 mintues after pulling in. Insane.
