A new 30-minute documentary offers a vivid, close-up look at the University of Michigan’s solar car team at the World Solar Challenge in Australia last October.
The national champion solar car team will soon put its 2011 car and crew to the toughest test before the October World Solar Challenge. On Saturday, the University of Michigan team will embark on a 1,000-mile, four-day “mock race” that will ring the state’s Lower Peninsula.
Before the Indy 500’s 100th anniversary race, U-M’s solar car Quantum will roll in the Formula Sun Grand Prix.
With its sleek 2011 car Quantum now built and ready for testing, the University of Michigan’s No. 1 solar car team in America is preparing to take on the world.
