What can we expect from entries in the Challenger Class?

Changes to the allowable regulations in 2017 resulted in a divergence of designs—from short, wide cars to long narrow cars. We expect the designs to continue to evolve. A great deal of lateral thinking will be required to meet conflicting needs of maximising the solar collection area, minimising aerodynamic drag, and meeting the other design requirements needed to qualify as Challenger class, and contest the World Solar Cup.
