Brief Control Stop Update

Continuum has just passed through the Glendambo Control Stop around 1:30pm Australia time. Based on the GPS data we seem to have made it there without any stops and we should be able to make it most of the way to Port Augusta before the end of the day!

We recently learned that the Stanford Solar Car Team was involved in a race-ending accident. Our Team is very sorry to hear this as we have had a very good relationship with their Team since the beginning of this project. We are very thankful to hear that no one was injured in the Stanford accident and hope that they are able to repair their car for the upcoming North American Solar Challenge!

We're actually parked for the night past Port Augusta. Gearing up for a last day sprint into the city.

Go Blue!

From the Hochschule Bochum SolarCar-Team blog entry for today (via Babelfish):

10 minutes later run departure of the Road House at 8:30 o'clock property Twente, Phoenix and Tiga into the minute interval. At 8:32 o'clock Michigan appears on the scene. Large putty surfaces witness from the extensive repair work at the vehicle from the USA. The crew stands obviously under high voltage. Rumors from the other teams tell that Michigan tries to be able to be taken off the Reparturzeit from Sunday from the competition time. If by the organizer one accepts, the Bochumer team the 4 can. Place copy!

Im guessing the crew stands obviously under high voltage means that we have a lot of energy. the rest of the blog entry had a really interesting blow by blow of Michigan trying to and finally passing Hochschule on the way to Port Augusta.

Good job team! Good luck tomorrow on the ride into the finish line!

It looks like Nuon finished. My Dutch is rusty but I think "#1" isn't lost in translation...

I'm looking forward to seeing the final cumulative elapsed time for the teams...it looks like we did amazingly well all things considered.

Well done!
