Solar Car Racing Taking Off in Australia!



Solar car racing is happening in Australia, I think this would be a great movement towards future commercial solar cars.  I don’t think we are that far away especially with the number of hybrid cars out there already with Prius already applying some solar panels.  I would love to own a solar race car one day.

SYDNEY — A 3,000-kilometre (1,860-mile) solar car race across Australia’s desert heartland began in the northern city of Darwin Sunday, organisers said.

The cars left Darwin in hot and humid weather at about 8:30 am (2300 GMT Saturday) on the journey that is expected to end mid-week in the South Australian city of Adelaide.

“We had 32 vehicles start this morning,” Mike Drewer, a spokesman for the World Solar Challenge, told AFP, adding that weather conditions were good for solar cars.
