Longest stage

Day 12: Longest stage

Stages of day 12 - 350km
Even few more hour of sleep still didn’t help to get out quicker of the warm and cosy bed. Therefore we missed to be on time at Bad Pyrmont… The last free plugs were at the end of the row of all cars. Like for the punishment our car got there less visual awareness. However the time went on, more and more people walked to the Suncar and adore the electric sport car. An old skipper had told us his whole life story, started by building the first vehicles with a fuel cell to his sailing adventures over the Atlantic...  A while later we remarked that almost everyone has left the place!

Team Suncar left alone...
Insertion: Since days we were looking forward to go to the bath at Bad Pyrmont. It was announced, that we will get there by a shuttle bus. As a short and painless conclusion we once again were too late to catch the bus… 

Our new program was: charging, waiting for lunchtime and leaving on time! The cars were parked in front of the Phoenix Contact building. Suddenly before lunch many international business guys surrounded very interested our electric cars. They enjoyed their short break of the meeting until we invited them all to do together the waving. The lunch, which we got in the Phoenix’s canteen, was just great!

Waving with the buisiness guys
We left about 1pm and drove on the shortest way to the big event in Osnabrück. There arrived, all cars need to charge for the 50km long rally stage. 30 points could be scored for driving skills with the vehicles. We tried the best, but we hadn’t a real chance against the other cars, with more agility and a bigger view field and versed drivers... 

Osnabrück by night
Back in town we need some refreshment for the last and longest stage of the day with 132km. Finally we arrived in Leer and found a pub, which was still open and where we got a cold beer before we jumped in the beds.
