Route Overview

The Sasol Solar Challenge, South Africa, occurs on public roads with normal traffic. It is therefore essential that teams comply with the road rules and any conditions imposed by the road traffic authorities. The solar challenge will start in Pretoria on September 27th and ends eight days later in Cape Town going through Kroonstad, Bloemfontein, Colesberg, Graaff-Reinet, Port Elizabeth, Knysna and Swellendam. The main route will span approximately 2000km through the country, covering an average distance of 260km a day. Teams will have the option to expand their daily distance, by driving loops varying from 58km up to 132km. Loops can be driven more than once and have to be completed entirely in order to count. Towns that are included by these loops are Sasolburg, Deneysville, Winburg, Theunissen, Edenburg, Reddersburg, Hanover, Jansenville, Klipplaat, Stormsrivier, Heidelberg WC, Witsand and Caledon. It is expected that the top teams will reach a total of 6000km, covering at least 700km a day on average. The framework of this event makes it possible to set new records in distance, energy consumption, strategic planning and more.

We change the route for every solar challenge to keep it exciting and give all teams equal opportunity to win the race, even though they have never competed in South Africa before.
