3000 km race straight through the Australian outback
The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is a bi-yearly top race driving purely on solar energy. The race crosses 3000 km straight through the Australian outback, from the start in Darwin (North) to the finish line in Adelaide (South). Despite a setback of (limited) damage on the solar panel, Solar Team Twente and RED E are ready for the start on October 13th. Ready to race several of days through the outback of Australia from North to South. With only one goal in mind; being the first team to cross the finish line in Adelaide and becoming World Champion!
For this year the race has a record number of entries who will participate The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge: 53 teams from 24 countries from all around the world. The solar cars will drive during daylight hours (8:00 – 17:00), and when it’s time to stop, the team has to set up camp at that precise location.
