The American Solar Challenge (ASC) is a typical car race. The goal is to design, build and drive solar powered cars. Teams from around the world are racing over an estimated 2,800 km in the United States. To qualify and compete, cars must first perform and prove themselves on a closed circuit. Once the steering, braking, acceleration and other systems are accepted, the cars race on the racetrack and test their aerodynamics and efficiency to get the best cumulative time and to flee with victory!
The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (WSC) is an internationally renowned race across the Australian continent. The university teams leave Darwin, located in the north of the country, to go to Adelaide, 3,000 km below. Solar cars must handle a variety of factors such as dust, wind, sand, heat and sun to cross the finish line first and earn top honors!
