The team made it into Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia yesterday evening.
Darwin marks the start of the 3000 KM Veolia World Solar Challenge, which will begin on the morning of October 16th. In the mean time, the team will be at the Hidden Valley Raceway for Qualifying and final preparation of Quantum. We have already taken Quantum out for a spin on the track.

We are staying at the Youth Shack Hostel, which is well equipped with air conditioning and a pool. Since the temperatures are easily in the upper 90s to 100s with high humidity, it is a pleasant retreat.
