Twente solar car crashes

The solar car built and designed by students from Twente flipped over during the third day of the Darwin to Adelaide World Solar Challenge race on Tuesday, after a flat tyre caused the driver to lose control.

Despite the damage to the 21Revolution, the team say they hope to be back in the race for the fourth day on Wednesday.
The Delft University team, who were hot favourites to win the race, are now in second place with Nuna5. Their car was badly damaged in an accident before the race started.
