At the end of Wednesday:

443 km under its own power for the day.
Todays on track time was 6.5hrs, average speed was 65km for the whole day, max speed was 95 for the test pilot today

From the team:

Arpit:  This country is open and nobody is holding your hand. There's space to think.

Gary: Waiting on Hays creek hill, out of Darwin, to take a picture. SolarSpirit came up the hill so fast he missed the picture. All he could do was punch the air and scream.
(speed was set at 95km/hr in the run up to this hill)
