    Wooo! Cambridge Engineers FTW!

    Having looked at the article on electronicsweekly (and seen the photo at the bottom of it) I realise that I actually know a couple of the people who've worked on this. I think I've seen the car a few times as well.

    I hope they win it, just so I can get to say I know someone famous!

    Doesn't look comfortable for 3,000 kilometres! Still, good luck :-)

    Kirano, are you in Cambridge? You're welcome to come see the car if you are.

    I am actually heavily involved in this project, leading the technical design team. Was pleasantly surprised to see it appear on Hexus whilst browsing this morning! Thank you all for the kind words above, the project is very busy at the moment but going well.
