The sailing solarcar
The Vattenfall Solar Team will participate in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge in October 2019. Here the team can become world champions for the eighth time.
NunaX takes part in the biennial Bridgestone World Solar Challenge from 13 to 20 October. Fifty student teams race from Darwin in the north to Adelaide, which is more than 3,000 kilometers south. This is the largest solar race in the world. The winner can call himself world champion solar racing.
NunaX is driven by three drivers. Each driver runs continuously for 3 hours. In addition, the temperature in NunaX can rise to as much as 50 degrees Celsius. The route then takes you via the public road. Safety is therefore important. In addition to the high-quality materials, a special cage construction offers the drivers extra safety.
