World Solar Challenge 2007 

Teams are gathering in Darwin, Australia, for the 2007 Panasonic World Solar Challenge, which takes place 21 to 28 October. This is the 20th anniversary of the biennial event, in which teams research, build and design vehicles that are capable of completing the 3000km journey from Darwin in the North, to Adelaide in the South using only sunlight as fuel. And of course, then proving that their vehicle works, in the spirit of friendly competition.

59 vehicles from 19 countries are competing. There will be 18 solar vehicles competing in the Solar Challenge and a further 21 solar vehicles competing in the Adventure class. There is also a Greenfleet Demonstration class for bio friendly fuels that has attracted 20 other vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Read more about the Panasonic World Solar Challenge in an article from Steve Dow.
