BWSC Teams Down Under

While the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge officially kicks off in October, some of the teams aren't wasting any time, and have already arrived here in Australia!

For many participants it may be their first BWSC and their first time in Australia, so the earlier they can arrive and settle in the better!

Some of the teams have set up workshops in areas along the BWSC Route to continue working on their car. From the University of Michigan Solar Car Team in Adelaide, to Top Dutch Solar Racing in Port Augusta, all the way up to Agoria Solar Team in Darwin.

It hasn't been all work though, some of the teams have been getting up to plenty of fun here in Australia as well. Here's a round up of the BWSC Teams that have been hanging out Down Under lately!



Team Sonnenwagen Aachen enjoyed a stunning sunrise in Nuriootpa, South Australia, on a chilly weekend! We’re sure it won’t be long before they’re feeling the heat though!



Top Dutch Solar Racing have been embracing the Aussie lifestyle with their outback BBQs out at their current base in Quorn, South Australia.



Agoria Solar Team took a day off from their preparations to enjoy the Top End! Before they car arrives they managed a swim and explore around Darwin, and got to see a beautiful Northern Territory sunset. 



Western Sydney Solar Team don’t have too far to travel, but there’s still plenty of work to be done to prepare themselves for the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.



2017 Challenger Class Winners Vattenfall Solar Team have been having some fun as they make their way up the BWSC Route. Some teams like to travel the route in reverse prior to the Challenge, to scout the road as part of their preparations.



Stanford Solar Car Project stopped by the Art Gallery of South Australia to check out one of the incredible exhibits.
