The UK Team arrived in Deblin on Tuesday, with the only mishap being the gearbox on Pete Christy's car, which has unfortunately broken. But otherwise all has gone well for the UK Team. So far the UK Team have met the Americans, Japanese, Israelis, Australians and Venezuelans. They are sharing their practice site with the Israelis and Australians. Apparently the Israelis have an 11 year old in their team, and his flying has been described as OK! - he flys a Hirobo Eagle much to the delight of the Christy's. The weather has been good today, unlike the monsoon the team encountered on the drive through to get there, which together with the gearbox problem made for a safe but terrible journey. Some of the Canadians (the Grays) were reportedly driving from Berlin - an unofficial estimate says they MIGHT get to Deblin next week sometime (yes, the roads are THAT good!)
