Sasol Day 6 / iESC begins

Day 6 of the Sasol Solar Challenge has seen some back-and-forth overtaking between the Dutch and the Belgians (in between roadworks), but the final position is the same as yesterday. Follow the Dutch at, the Belgians at, and see my annotated list of teams for team social media links. The official race social media is at      

Meanwhile, solar car teams are starting to arrive in Belgium for the iLumen European Solar Challenge (iESC). Naturally, I also have an annotated list of iESC teams. Scrutineering begins on the 15th. The 24-hour track race will start at 13:00 on the 17th, continuing until 13:00 on the 18th. For fans at home interested in the weather, check the forecast. Also, at the top of this page is a webcam nearby, looking west, towards the Zolder racetrack. This webcam is at the track itself (with a view of the “Kleine Chicane,” looking roughly north from just about the centre of the track). See the race social media at
