Taken from the article.
She's not made it yet, but in two years the part-time race car driver from Lilydale hopes to squeeze into the high-tech cockpit of a squid-shaped car parked down one end of the wide, flat salt pan that is South Australia's Lake Gairdner.

In front of her will stretch about 150 kilometres of dead-flat salt pan

it seems that a lot of the technical know how for this project is courtesy of one Franklin Ratcliff......! I can't see a propellor on it though?

Well if the big squid goes belly-up we can always cut it up and eat calamari lakeside in the canteen. :) :) :) :)
