Bridgestone World Solar Challenge

Bridgestone World Solar Challenge

The World Solar Challenge 2019 started with optimal conditions. Not only that we were able to achieve the best top speed on the race track in Hidden Valley, but we were also able to start the race in third place. Due to wind and weather we had an exciting race. On the fourth day of the race our Sonnenwagen came off the track and rolled over several times. The driver Kai was unhurt. After a short moment of despair we could convince ourselves that the race was not over. After three hours the car was fit to drive again and finished the race in sixth place. At the award ceremony our resistance and safety measures were honoured with the David Fewchuck Spirit of the Event Award and the Safety Award.
