A road race like no other, the World Solar Challenge participants will traverse more than 3,000 kilometres of the Australian continent from tropical Darwin to Adelaide, in cars powered by only the sun. The 'Challenge', to design and build a car capable of crossing Australia on the power of daylight.
The four classes are:
Challenger Class Solar EVs - designed primarily for efficiency rather than comfort or practicality.
Cruiser Class Solar EVs - are designed primarily for practicality. They are designed to carry two or more occupants.
Adventure Class - is for entry level teams wishing to campaign Solar EVs built for previous International Solarcar Federation events but do not meet the regulations for Challenger Class.
Evolution Class - is designed for vehicles which have been designed, equipped or modified to demonstrate a significant reduction in environmental impact. These may be practical or concept vehicles.Visit Website
