It is the world's biggest solar endurance race, held in Australia from Darwin to Adelaide, across 3000km of rugged outback terrain. There are three different categories: Challenger, Cruiser and Adventure. In 2013, our team entered into the prestigious Challenger class and finished the race over 5 days and placed 11th out of 22 teams.
