A Heroic Journey. 3022km Powered By the Sun

The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (BWSC) is a biennial global competition whose teams from around the world build and race solar-powered vehicles. Starting from Darwin with a finish line set in Adelaide, the race totals a distance of over 3000km through the harsh Australian Outback. The BWSC consistently attracts over 40 teams biennially, from 30 different countries, bringing significant global media attention to the race. Entrants include prestigious universities ranging from Stanford to Cambridge, as well as technological institutions and private enterprises such as MIT and Volkswagen. The race offers a chance for the worlds best to compete against the elements and compete for the win.

Team's Update:


Car Cartoon Graphic

ANU Solar Racing is a 100% student run team which, under normal circumstances, would complete in the biennial Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (BWSC). Following the cancellation of the race, members of the BWSC and a variety of Australian teams (namely ANU Solar Racing, UNSW Sunswift and Team Arrow) have banded together to organise an Australian event which will be called the Australian Solar Challenge (AUSC).

The minimum viable product for this event will include a range of challenges at the Wakefield Track, an honorary lap around the ACT and participation in the BWSC online event. However, the preferred event would be an on-road event, passing through some of NSW's most famous regional centres such as Broken Hill, Wagga Wagga, Bathurst and Dubbo and finishing in Canberra. We are still in the process of seeking the relevant approvals for this event but are hopeful for a positive outcome.
