World Solar Challenge: The Countries

I previously posted a hyperlinked team list for the World Solar Challenge in October, but here it is again, updated and sorted by country (the map above also shows where teams are from). Results from the recent Abu Dhabi Solar Challenge and contact/media details are also shown. Returning teams from the 2013 World Solar Challenge are indicated with a Returning icon, while the icon marks teams that are already in Australia (43 teams).

The symbols are clickable and lead to detailed team profiles, and the team social media icons ( etc.) are also clickable. Some of the returning teams have switched classes from their previous entry and, sadly, some of the teams from 2013 (such as the Swiss and the Italians) are not competing this year. To the teams that are competing, best of luck!

Finally, this photo (by Jorrit Lousberg) shows Team Nuon in the outback two years ago. This is what it will be like:
