The Sasol Solar Challenge is a competition in which participating teams design, manage, build and drive solar-powered vehicles across South Africa’s diverse and beautiful landscape. The eight-day event this year begins on Saturday, 24 September, from the CSIR, Gate 3. The 14 local and international solar-powered cars will travel as far as they can on looped routes between Pretoria and Cape Town, some covering distances of over 2,000 km.
The 2016 Sasol Solar Challenge promises to be the best event yet, with both local and international teams competing with more innovative vehicles than ever before, pushing the boundaries of solar car engineering.
