+++Breaking News: Unicamels on the salt lake! Long drive with a lot of kilometres to go+++
We woke up with a nice view over the salt lake. In the night before we completed our roadbooks and were eager for the next challenge: a race around the embankment of the salt lake with a constant velocity of 40 km/h. In the middle we had two minutes time to grab exactly 777g of salt. In the end we had 838 g of wet salt…not too bad.
While we were on the road to the drivers’ camp (500 km away) the first collateral damage occurred: Henry hit a bird at 120 km/h which tried to land on his bumper. That’s where we found the bird a couple of kilometres later. The Unicamels decided to make a Viking funeral on a lake.
We drove to the next lake on our way but due to swamp there was no possibility to get there we decided to bury the bird in the swamp.
We continued driving and bought the best freshly picked cherries in the world and were invited for a cup of Chai the roadside vendors.
The day ended in a sheltered car par in the middle of Usak. We had dinner with Team Smile and when we came back to our camp things were crazy: locals and some of the other teams battled their cars with spinning wheels, a lot of noise and smog and quite a crowd.
