TAFE SA: Thursday October 18th - DAY 6

The team returned to Hidden Valley raceway today for driver training and performance testing, we also received our official briefing.
We spent the rest of the day practicing driving, trail car operations, communications and driver changes.
We all got to walk through the pit lane to meet the other teams and have a look at their cars.
Everywhere we could see busy teams of people preparing for scrutineering and the journey to Adelaide.
The car performed very well again today, the other teams looked on as we drove around the track without dramas or frantic repair work.
At one point, the car was doing 50kph and collecting more energy from the sun than it needed to run the motor,
so it was charging the battery at the same time.
After bringing the car back to the base camp we all went to the Mindil Beach markets for the evening, where we enjoyed food, music, and shopping amongst crowds of people along the foreshore.
