Participants and fans of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge recently entered a contest to capture and share the spirit of this epic journey in all its glory.
Here are the top entries (in no particular order)
Caption: A little bit different from my usual content, but I thought I should probably just let everyone know that I'm in the middle of woop woop Australia for a while, racing a solar car!
Caption: Pictured having a great time soldering... something, Tom rounds out our small yet capable electrical team! #BWSC19
Caption: We want to say thank you for all the warm wishes and endless support from our solar families. We are proud to say that our container finally got cleared and we couldn't be happier. Alhamdulillah.
Caption: WE HAD OUR FIRST TRACK TIME TODAY! The drivers got a good feel for the car and it uncovered a few minor issues we're fixing now.
Caption: My first time shooting under the night sky, shout out to Coober Pedy for being so gorgeous and @vwaustralia for the sleek as Caravelle! Thank you!
Caption: What a day! Today we qualified in first place at the hot lap and tomorrow the real deal starts, this is it! BWSC here we come
Caption: Only one hand print of rubber connects our pride and joy to the road. Only Bridgestone can deliver the efficiency we need to take us the 3022 km to the finish line of the @worldsolarchallenge
Caption: First road test completed yesterday, so excited to see the car moving! Also @9newsdarwin came along and interviewed @elliedesmond94
Caption: Don't shade the array!
Caption: All smiles & happy faces! Today was a very exciting day for our team!
Caption: Control Stop Katherine on the first day of the World Solar Challenge. The Challenge runs over 3000kms from Darwin to Adelaide through the Outback.
Caption: It has been quite a sad week for us. Our container is still in Darwin Port and only scheduled to be delivered earliest by Tuesday evening. We are praying that our problemw ould be solved in time for our scrutineering. Do know that whatever happens, the whole team won't back down from the adventure. We will do our best to be a part of the greatest solar racing experience.
Caption: Ready to roll! Tomorrow, we're facing the #qualifier, which decides the team's starting positions for the race. The stakes are high: in 2017 we finished first in the qualifier...
