WSC 2013 starts this morning!

The World Solar Challenge is due to begin in a few hours (8:30 AM Australian Central Standard Time), as cars begin their run down the Stuart Highway. The forecast is for sunny weather, 24–34°C. Good luck to all, and hope you all make it to Adelaide for the 10–13 October finish!

Teams from Australia, Japan, USA, the Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, Singapore, Turkey, Switzerland, Indonesia, Italy, China, Sweden, Colombia, South Korea, Malaysia, Germany, Taiwan, New Zealand, the Philippines, Hong Kong, and Chile will be competing. The WSC website has a car tracker to show how far the teams have gone.

An entry (Tushka Hashi) reminiscent of the classic 1996 film Race the Sun comes from Choctaw Central High School in Mississippi. Special good wishes to the young people on that team!
