Are you ready for the fast approaching World Solar Challenge 2013, from Darwin to Adelaide, Australia, between Oct. 6-13, 2013? This year, the largest class is Challenger Class. Even after five teams (solar cars) have already withdrawn, there are still twenty-four solar cars in contention. Remember, in 2013, Challenger Class Solar EVs must have four wheels! Please refer to/Click:  Regulations for the 2013 World Solar Challenge.

For a look at some of the vehicles participating in the Challenger Class, below:

Updates Before Results of Stage 4 of American Solar Challenge (ASC) 2012


Hi, Dear Solar Enthusiasts,

(Please click onred linksbelow)

Before the results come in for Stage 4, I’d like to respond to some of your questions regarding regulations and solar cells of this race.  Details are in links below:

*Recall our July 18, 2012 post of, where one would find the heaviest Finish Penalty Time by the MIT team;this is due to  the fact that the penalty, in this case, is based on how many miles the car is trailered (please refer to Regulations above, under 8.7  Time Penaltis)and MIT’s Chopper Del Sol experienced a moderate crash on Sunday, the second day of the race for American Solar Challenge 2012. Nevertheless, the spirited MIT students quickly repaired the damaged composite body in the lower front and the affected electrical system, regained the functioning of their solar car, and aimed to finish this race.  Yes, they have definitely shown us the importance of  not to be discouraged by momentary set backs and how to get back up on the horse/solar car, in this case, in life’s journey. We shall be cheering them on.

In case some of you missed the channel/uploaded videos from in our previous post, you will find some of our uploaded interviews  at sunisthefuture channelsusansunnunamaker’s channel of Youtube.  At this channel, you will also find other interviews/reports of World Solar Challenge 2011 and various other informative video clips.  Enjoy!  More will be coming in future posts.  Until then….
