As solar energy and solar car enthusiasts, and solar car racers and teams from all corners of the globe converge upon Darwin, Australia, awaiting for the first day of this year’s Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2015, these 44 teams from 25 countries/regions are taking on the ultimate endurance challenge in the harshest of climates to demonstrate to the world that our automotive future will be shaped by the solar energy. This 3,000 kilometer event between Darwin and Adelaide, Australia, will begin from the State Square (in front of the Parliament House) of Darwin, Australia, on Sunday, October 18, 2015, at 8:30 a.m., and the leading cars are expected to arrive late on Wednesday (Oct. 21, 2015) or early Thursday (Oct. 22, 2015), finishing at the City of Adelaide’s Victoria Square, Australia.
