Solar powered car racing

    On Sunday, Australia launched the international World Solar Challenge, which is nothing more than a race car powered by solar energy. This event is currently held every two years and gathers many teams from several dozen countries. So, this year 41 cars take part in the tournament.

    The task of the participants is to overcome the route of 3000 km. For obvious reasons, the race will take place only in the daytime. A favorite of the competition is the Dutch Nuon team from Delft University of Technology, whose Nuob III two years ago crossed the finish line after 29 hours and 11 minutes of the race, developing an average speed of 64.3 mph during that time.
