Extra, extra, read all about it!

Stanley, the autonomous and heavily modified volkswagen Touareg created by the Stanford Racing Team, has just completed the DARPA grand challenge in 7 hours and 30 minutes. The speed limitations of the course make it impossible for any other bot to catch him in this time-elapsed competition structure.

Congratulations to Stanford and to Stanley for winning the prestige and respect of an industry, as well as a cool US $2 million.

I wonder if the team divides any of that money up, or the school gets to keep it all?
