The race began yesterday morning. We left Darwin at 8:36 AM, reached our first control stop in Katherine at 1:02 PM, and stayed for a required half-hour rest before hitting the road again. We ended the day by arriving in Dunmarra at 5:39 PM, a minute before the required stop time.

Overall things are going well. We did use a bit more of our battery than expected, but made good time. At this stage, we are in 1st place for the Silicon Array Class, in 5th place for the Challenge Class, and 6th overall. We’d like to give a shout-out to Panasonic, as their other sponsored team, Tokai University, is in first place overall.
