We are a solar racing team about to embark on a 3,000km journey through the Australian Outback in a solar car that we built, AMA!
We are Western Sydney University's solar car team, a group of 22 students who are about to head on a 3,000km journey through the Aussie Outback from Darwin to Adelaide as part of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. We’re coming to you from Hidden Valley racetrack just outside of Darwin, where we qualified 3rd fastest for tomorrow’s race start.
The biennial event is in its 30th year, and now has three different classes of vehicle competing, but we’re competing in the (fastest) Challenger class. Our team of 22 takes care of everything from the design of the car to the build and marketing to tedious administration. And, of course, posing for photos for proof!
Ask us anything!
Thanks so much guys, we're going to finish up in a couple of minutes. We've got some last minute tinkering to do before we hit the road tomorrow morning. Thanks for all your questions!
