The JU solar team is a Swedish team that is going to participate in the world’s largest solar race.
Yesterday there was a feature in TV4-News. Click here and then jump to approx. 5 minutes. It's astonishing how the the same power as the one of a vacuum cleaner can rocket the vehicle up to 90 km/h!
The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is an open international competition where the participants build vehicles that are powered by solar energy. They are about to drive across Australia, Darwin to Adelaide 3000 km, in the shortest possible time. The race will be held between 18:th to 25:th of October.
The competition is hard and the race is covered by media from all over the world.
The vehicles are optimized regarding weight and power consumption so there are no comfort details such as AC or even a fan. The Australian sun will be rough on the drivers! For that reason they will use TST Sweden Cooling Vests!
From TST we wish you all luck! Go get them!
