World Solar Challenge: Team 77

77  University of Toronto / Blue Sky (Horizon)

The Blue Sky Solar Racing team from the University of Toronto came 8th in the Challenger class in the 2013 World Solar Challenge. This year, they are racing their 8th generation vehicle, Horizon (photo above by Roberta Baker). As with many teams, they have switched to a (probably faster) asymmetrical design. Their car also has lighter batteries and improved safety systems. They are running an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for transporting the car to the race in Australia. Good luck, team 77!
