WSC: Tuesday night

The end of WSC race day 3, and it’s been absolute carnage. There are only 6 cars left in the Cruiser class, and it’s difficult to compare their scores since they haven’t all travelled the same distance (Eindhoven is well ahead, though). In the Challenger class, we are down to 15 cars. I will give some further analysis on them in my next post. However, it’s beginning to look like the new rules might have been a step too far for many teams.

The map above (click to zoom) shows raw GPS positions (teams have stopped for the night). The table below shows team numbers, raw road distance from Darwin, class (or number of seats for Cruiser class), team name, team social media links, and some links to pictures or videos. Adventure-class teams are included. For a live map of raw GPS data, see the official tracker.

  1. It has not been uncommon in previous years for teams at the bottom to trailer their solar car to the next stop leaving them incomplete on distance at the end but still listed in the final results in the adventure class.

    3.29.1 Teams unable to maintain a minimum speed of 60 km/h on the open road or unable to drive to the next control stop before it closes must stop and transport their solar car forward to the next open control stop to get further instructions from the Clerk of the Course.
    3.29.2 The Clerk of the Course may allow the team to continue in the (non-competitive) Adventure class.

    The poor weather predicted for tomorrow might cause some extra problems for several teams though

    • In the past, trailered teams still competed, but based on how many solar km they had done. Moving trailered teams to Adventure class is new this year.

  2. You are showing Apollo ahead of IVE but WSC say that IVE have made Alice and Apollo have not.

    Looking closely at the map I’d say they are in pre-arranged camp sites IVE went backwards and Apollo forward. Either way, they have to cover 1530km in 22 or 21.5 hours at around 70 kph.
