13/14th October - Finish Line

We arrived in Adelaide on Friday afternoon, after leaving one of our Electrical Engineers, Zi, with AUSRT in case any of their issues resurfaced. We got ahead of a few teams before they started driving at 8am and so were able to watch them cross the finish line and give them a very warm welcome. 

12th October - Challenge Day 5

After a stormy night, which left us all a little down-spirited, the team were happy to be back on the road with the sun shining early this morning. 

11th October - Challenge Day 4

This morning, the Media Team with other interested team members, headed south at sunrise to go and find the closest solar car teams and capture some shots of morning charging and the solar cars on the road. This plan was modified rather by the torrential rain and large amounts of standing water on the roads. 

10th October - Challenge Day 3

On the road at a leisurely 7:45am this morning, we headed down to Alice Springs, the Control Stop which marks the halfway point on the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge route. 

9th October - Challenge Day 2

Another day out on the road following the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge kicked off with some of the team having an interview with ABC news at Daly Waters. This was off the back of a conversation with the presenter yesterday who was interested in how we are making the most of our time here in Australia, by helping out, and learning from other teams, and still being part of the BWSC life despite not competing. 

8th October - Challenge Day 1

All the teams were up at the crack of dawn to get to the start line today at Parliament Square in Darwin. The cars were all displayed for the public until the official starting time and there were huge crowds of solar team members, supporters and local enthusiasts alike.
