Starting 8 October, entrants will travel some 1,900 miles across Australia, from Darwin to Adelaide. The World Solar Challenge is open to three vehicle classes – those designed for speed, vehicles with a focus on energy efficiency and practicality, and a class for vehicles that don’t meet either of the above requirements.
