Almost looks like salt on the road in places.

Remote!

An interesting note is the racing association has very elaborate cleaning procedure that require all vehicles to be cleaned going onto the lake (remove dirt/sand) and coming off the lake (remove salt).

I'd be getting out the cork and string, pronto.

“To trim the tail plane and put power into the wing, Ashby pumps a foot pedal to build hydraulic pressure. Stored power is not allowed. Alongside the steering wheel is a paddle shift he can touch to depower the wing. The system works.”

Looks as though the west coast of Australia is in for a drenching.
Hopefully Lake Gairdner doesn't fill up with water again!

Probably a control system that's being developed for the AC .
