Day 4 (Oct. 24, 2007) World Solar Car Challenge Results

October 24, 2007 : SINAG Approaches Halfway Mark at 11th PlaceSinag has reached Alice Springs earlier than expected and left for Adelaide by 2:46 PM Australian Time today.

According to WSC Day 4 Provisional results, Sinag climbed to 21st placed from 27th place yesterday among 37 racers. It has maintained its 11th place within the challenge class.

Sinag has travelled approximately 500 kms today. The most travelled by our team in a day. From my estimate, Sinag seems to be doing better and is poised to break into the top 10 in the challenge class(barring any technical problems).

Looks like the team has decided to skip staying longer in Alice Springs (as initially planned) and pushed themselves to the finish line in Adelaide. The team has been on the road since Sunday and has camped outdoors since then.
