Hot in the Australian savannah

On day 2 of the World Solar Challenge, the sky was clear for most of the day. In the afternoon, some higher clouds were appearing over the southern horizon, but nothing to worry about.
The weather station on our vehicle measured 36 °C. And the moderate wind was mainly easterly to north-easterly.
Being well informed about this weather, the Punch Powertrain Solar Team could do very well. 

They overtook the Japanese Tokai Team and became fourth in the race. Team Michigan, Team Twente en Team Nuon not being to far ahead. But bad luck  knocked them down to place 5 again...

Tonight, I will talk for a  moment to the weather gods. Maybe they can arrange something for us tomorrow ;-)
