In September, we told you that the Stanford Solar Car team was ready to race in Australia as part of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. Well, the engineering students started the 1,885-mile long race on Sunday, in Darwin, NT (Northern coast of Australia).
Sierra Circuits is proud to sponsor the Stanford Solar Car team! Since 1989, students design and build every two years a solar car. The goal is not only to improve environmentally sustainable technology, there is also a big race to win, the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. In 2015, they finished 6th overall after driving their asymmetrical catamaran aerobody solar car, Arctan, during 5 days in the Australian Outback.
