What is the design philosophy behind your solar car?

TAFE SA has been inovative with previous designs and this is no exception. Our design is toward more efficient transport in the light freight and recreational vehicle areas and as before, we do our build with mostly off-the-shelf components.

What is unique about your solar car?

Unique features of the TAFE SA solar vehicle are the truck-style sleeper cab and the ability to tow a trailer for freight or recreational purposes.

Why does your team value participating in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge?

TAFE SA places a high value on the opportunity to display the skills of our students and staff on the global arena provided by the BWSC. Experience gained through participating in the event is invaluable for our students when seeking employment and further education.

What is the one thing your team is looking forward to when you visit Australia?

The TAFE SA team anticipates networking with our visitor teams from overseas and sharing our wonderful country.
