In honour of the upcoming World Solar Challenge, I’ve revised my SOLAR RACING board game (see picture above). Game play is more interesting now, as game play uses a deck of 54 cards, rather than just dice. The cards are illustrated with 16 photographs of central Australia and of previous races. If you’re interested, game rules can be downloaded from the game page (see the link in the “Downloads” section).
The World Solar Challenge is an exciting race to find the best solar car in the world. That makes for serious competition between countries. But there are also some interesting contests within countries. The most obvious is between Nuon (3) and Twente (21), who came first and second in the Challenger class last time.
Within Korea, Kookmin University Solar Team (82, Taegeuk, above) has a track record, coming 20th in the Challenger class in 2015. Korea National University of Transportation (28, Woong-bi, below) is a new team. Both teams have very nice-looking cars. Who will be the best Korean team this year?
