SolarFox: Fourth day's racing

Fortunately, the good weather returned as the team set their sights on the significant target of Alice Springs - not just because it represented the halfway mark of the race but also because the Dean of Engineering at UCL had carelessly promised a bottle of whiskey to the team should they reach Alice Springs. The fine weather helped make up for lost ground the day before and despite a steep and twisting section of the Stuart Highway, the team made their target by the end of the day's racing, once again holding onto their 10th placing in the Challenge Class.
