TAFE SA: Day 5

It’s hot and humid here in Darwin and we South Australians are sweating and sweltering.

It rained heavily about 3 am and those of us sleeping under the stars were sent scurrying for shelter under the covered dining and work area.
We worked on the solar car all morning, modifying headrests to suit the new crash helmets and tidying up wiring in the cabin. The telemetry teamworked all day on the new telemetry system. In the afternoon we took the car to Hidden Valley Raceway for testing.

Everyone enjoyed the sight of Kelly whooshing down the main straight at nearly 100kph!
