Summary of WSC additional awards:

  • CSIRO technical innovation award: Kogakuin, for their hydropneumatic suspension.

  • Spirit of the Event award: Sonnenwagen Aachen, for not giving up.
  • Promotional award: Solar Team Twente, for their excellent media.

Temporarily offline

This blog will be offline for a few days.

For World Solar Challenge fans, the most recently updated teams list is here. It has been updated with preliminary scrutineering results.
