Kiting in a car across Australia

Top marks to these Germans who crossed Australia in an electric car, using a kite for power assist at times.  Keen eyes will spot them launching the kite at the Nullabor Roadhouse.

They broke 3 world records:
  1. Crossing a continent with a wind-powered vehicle for the first time
  2. Traveling the farthest in a wind-powered car over a 36 hour period
  3. Traveling the most distance ever covered by a wind-powered land vehicle.
