World Solar Challenge: the bloggers

Apart from the coverage here at Scientific Gems, and the coverage from the teams themselves, there are several other blogs about the World Solar Challenge.

The newly created blog at mostdece.blogspot.com is a superb resource. Although shrouded in mystery, the author is clearly a serious expert on solar car racing, and very much worth reading. See also @most_dece on Twitter.

For Japanese readers, the Zero to Darwin Project (www.zdp.co.jp) has good race coverage. They are also on Facebook and Twitter.

On the air again after a lengthy delay, legendary website www.solarracing.org is under new management, with new corporate sponsorship. Content is a little rough around the edges so far, but we will see how they go. The site’s Facebook and Twitter accounts are active too, although it’s not quite clear who is operating them.

Another blog that may be worth looking at is solarteamweather.blogspot.com by Tom Elegeert. A meteorologist attached to the Belgian team, Tom will be blogging about weather-related issues.

On the whole, it looks like WSC 2015 will be getting more online coverage than previous races, which is great!
