Counting down the days: Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2017

With less than a month to go until the World Solar Challenge 2017, all three competing Dutch Solar teams have arrived in Australia! However, the last few days were quite exciting for two of the Dutch teams. For a while it was uncertain if Nuon Solar Team and Solar Team Eindhoven could get their batteries to Australia in time for the race. Due to recent incidents, shipping batteries via air freight has become more difficult. Fortunately, both teams just recently announced their batteries are on their way to Australia!

Furthermore, Solar Team Eindhoven recently was covered by 7 news Adelaide as the team visited a primary school to inspire students. Their message: always reach for the stars. The third team, Solar Team Twente announced they will reveal their first driver this week.

In the coming weeks we will bring you the latest news on the Dutch Solar teams as they prepare for the big race. Stay tuned and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
