World Solar Challenge: Team 21

21  Solar Team Twente (Red One)

The Dutch team from the University of Twente came 3rd in the World Solar Challenge Challenger class in 2013, travelling from Darwin to Adelaide in 37 hours and 38 minutes (an average speed of 79.7 km/h). Two years before (in 2011), they came 5th. This year, with their new car Red One (photo above by Jérôme Wassenaar), they hope to win.

Interestingly, the car number (21) is a deliberate pun (for “Twente-1”). We wish them all the best with their goal of being “number one” this year. Good luck, team 21!

    • Yes, that’s what I was trying to say. I’ve reworded the post to clarify that.

      Let’s see whether the obvious linear progression continues.
