Aurora: 24 September, Hidden Valley

To determine grid position, each team does a flying lap of the Hidden Valley race track. We put Derrick in the car, hoping for a time around 2 minutes for the 2.9km circuit.

We are fourth on the grid. The top times were: TIGA (1:59), Formosun (2:01), Michigan (2:02) and Aurora (2:03).

We passed the swerve and braking tests easily.

We have been joined by a camera crew from the Discovery Channel, who will be accompanying us to Adelaide.
