Blue Sky: October 23, 2007

On Tuesday, the team began the day in Tennant Creek. It was beautiful and sunny out. Over the course of the morning, the solar car managed to pass several teams and maintain a cruising speed of 100 kilometers per hour. Also, it managed to reclaim its position of first Canadian team in the running. At midday, it rained for two hours and slowed all the teams down. Unfortunately, Blue Sky was unable to make it to Alice Springs by that evening. That being said, the team's spirits are great, and there have been no further mechanical or electrical breakdowns.
