WSC Scrutineering: more teams through!


Static scrutineering involves a length list of checks, mostly safety-related (photo: WSC). For pictures of the scrutineering process itself, see MostDece’s blog.

Here is the current status for World Solar Challenge teams, not including teams that have withdrawn from the race or failed to turn up (Intikallpa #4, PI #6, ITU #24, and KL Uni #37). The PASS icon marks teams that have passed static scrutineering (10 teams, so far), the FAIL icon marks teams that have failed (no teams), and the ? icon marks teams that have been asked to re-present (16 teams). Data is taken from the WSC website, from photographs of the status board, and from team self-reports.

Cruiser class – 11 teams

Challenger class – 29 teams

Adventure class – 3 teams
