Blue Sky: Update October 22, 2007

On Sunday, October 21, Blue Sky competed in the qualifying race, and placed sixth in the world out of 43 teams with the fastest time from Canada, and just behind the world champions from last year. On Monday, the race began. The team experienced some mechanical failures and electrical difficulties, which set them back to the middle of the race pack. However, the car is performing beyond expectations, and the team is confident that they will be able to reclaim ground. Everyone's spirits are very high. The team is currently in Blanca Blanca, and hopes to make Alice Springs by Tuesday evening. Alice Springs is the midway point on the race, and speech will be given there.
