1987 - 1999 Campaigns

Auroras Campaign and Event Reports from 1987 - 1999

World Solar Challenge 1999 - Report 3

We have had another good day. Today Mark Gilligan has re-built the battery box to fit in extra cells, and the new arrangement has passed scrutineering. We have also done another 200 km of road testing, and practice runs at the Hidden Valley track for tomorrow's speed trials. This gave us a chance to see the Minnesota team (see picture - their car is called, believe it or not, Aurora 4) and the team from Central Queensland Uni., who are racing one of our old cars--the one raced last time by Lake Tuggeranong College.
