World Solar Challenge
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.
Through a smoldering brush fire, past wind-shearing road trains, across the Australian continent, the University of Michigan’s Quantum was the first American car to finish the World Solar Challenge Thursday.
With a cutting-edge solar car, an advanced strategy and an intrepid 16-student race crew, the University of Michigan’s national champion solar car team is ready for the upcoming World Solar Challenge.
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.
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.
