Race Report BWSC 2009
The first day of the race went smooth, with the solar car making its way to second place. However, 380 kilometers past Darwin, disaster struck. While fighting for that coveted first place, a strong gust of wind picked up the car and swung it against a tree. The pilot was unharmed, but the car was heavily damaged. The team, defeated and disappointed, chose to drive back to Darwin to minimize the damage to the car.
