In the iLumen European Solar Challenge (iESC), scrutineering will take place today (Thursday), followed by the “dynamic parcour” tomorrow (Friday) and the main 24-hour track race on the weekend.
Because of Covid, the iESC is not open to the public. Fortunately, there is a plethora of technology options for following the race remotely:
- Live start to happen on Agoria’s Facebook on Saturday
- Live race tracker & status board from Circuit Zolder – provides an excellent, but abstract, overall view
- Provisional scoring sheet from the iESC organisers (includes scrutineering)
- Live Zolder webcam, at the “Kleine Chicane,” looking roughly north from about the centre of the track – rather low-res, but operates 24/7
- Live video inside their bullet car from Sonnenwagen Aachen (not yet up)
- 🆕 ITU will be streaming on Twitch
- Official iESC social media: (click on the icons)
- Team social media: see this list – so far, Aachen and Agoria are the most active
- A good option is to follow everybody on Instagram and check the Instagram stories: @ilumeneuropeansolarchallenge @solarteam_be @sonnenwagenaachen @solarteamtwente @solarehv @topdutchsolarracing @itusolarcarteam and @solarenergyracers
