The University of Nottingham team have previous experience with their sister project in the Formula Student competition. Their solar car is still being completed, but they showed off their racing car, Frankie (credit: UoN team)
During the day, the three solar cars ran slaloms and figure eights, and exchanged experiences in a spirit of friendly competition.

At a time when Covid prevented the UK teams from participating in International competitions, this event did much to keep the solar car spirit alive, so I am glad that DUEM organised it.
