World solar challenge 2003. Darwin to Adelaide 19 - 28 October. Check out the route. Meet the teams. Have a look at the Green Fleet class as well, where technology meets reality. I won't be able to watch the race but have high hopes for next year's Olympics.

Photos of some of the cars.
My favourite and winner of last year's race: Nuna II. text in Dutch, but good pictures.

Flying Dutchmen in lead after 2 days. The race ends Wednesday.

I really need to get a blog.

This is cool, ginz.

I wonder, though, if it would be cooler if everyone was stuck with the same "spec" car shell. Then, the focus would be more on the solar power system.

Yes it would, but I think the teams (universities) are more in the experimental phase at the moment. Which is good for experimental issues. Perhaps there will be a real standardized solar competition in a few years.

I love to watch the cars though. So SF.
