Bridgestone World Solar Challenge
The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (WSC) is an internationally renowned race that involves crossing the Australian continent. The university teams leave from Darwin, located in the north of the country, to go to Adelaide, some 3,000 km below.
Solar cars must manage a combination of factors such as dust, wind, sand, heat and sun to cross the finish line first and take top honors!
American Solar Challenge
The American Solar Challenge, ASC, is a typical car race to design, build, and drive solar-powered cars. Teams from all over the world are vying for a heated battle on a course of approximately 2,800 km in the United States.
To qualify and take part in the competition, cars must first perform and prove themselves on a closed circuit. Once the steering, braking, acceleration and other systems are accepted, the cars hit the race track and put their aerodynamics and efficiency to the test in order to get the best cumulative time and run away with the win!
