solar challenge

The recent World Solar Challenge saw the Japanese team emerge as winners, upsetting the pecking order that was once dominated by 4-time Dutch champs. They took top spot by making it past the finish line of the 1,864-mile solar car race that was held across Australia, completing the gruelling journey in 29 hours and 49 minutes even on a flat tire, giving it an impressive average speed of around 63mph.
