Dramatic start to desert solar race

Dramatic start to desert solar race : “The twentieth WSC featured 61 teams from 20 countries, which have entered beetle-like solar cars to complete the 3,000km journey through the centre of Australia over six days.”

This is a bad start because The Netherlands has won this race before and they have a lot of fun doing it and from what I remember,the University of Michigan normally does very well. A crash this early may not be bad if the car is repaired. That’s the problem though . This Adelaide to Darwin race is not only legendary, it’s very scientific and the future. These teams and cars are pioneering our future and each year we see how much better the solar cars are in this solar challenge. I hope they can all pick themselves up and dust themselves off because there is a way to go yet and it’s usually a really great race.
