World Solar Challenge: Team 43

43  Ardingly College (Ardingly Solar Car)

Ardingly College is an independent co-educational boarding and day school located in Ardingly, West Sussex (photo above by Dave Spicer). They appear to have fielded the first European school team in the WSC, and their solar car (below) is entered in the Cruiser class. The Cambridge University team seem to have provided some technical advice during development, and DHL have sponsored transport of the car to Australia. Construction appears to be slow however.

The team’ newly set up YouTube channel includes this video of construction in progress. Good luck, team 43!

Update: Construction is complete; see this video:

Update: And this photograph:

Update: They also have a new WordPress blog.
