Date set for the Grand Challenge 2

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has set a date of October 8th, 2005 for their second Grand Challenge. Will it be an even Grander Challenge than the first Grand Challenge, that abortive robotic road race from Barstow, California to Las Vegas which mainly resulted in robots blowing up or malfunctioning shortly after starting? Well, they did double the prize money to $2 million, a move which we hope guarantees us double the hijinks.
