Before the event

Teams are responsible for their own accommodation prior to the event. Please contact the event organisers for recommendations.

All teams are welcome to build their solar electric vehicles at a venue (to be announced), where space will be allocated for each team up to two weeks before scrutineering.

During scrutineering restaurant facilities will be made available for teams to buy food and drinks.

During the event

Daily accommodation is available to all teams. This will typically be camping space with restroom and restaurant facilities. The cost for camping will be paid by the event organisers. If teams do not wish to make use of the camping space, please inform the organisers at least two months prior to the event.

Teams are responsible for their own breakfast and lunch arrangements. Teams will be able to buy lunch at the daily control stops. The teams will be notified well in advance should any of these arrangements change.

The organisers aim to supply dinner at all overnight stops. If no dinner arrangements are made, teams will be notified well in advance.

Post-event activities

The 2018 Sasol Solar Challenge award ceremony will be from 11h30 to 14h00 on Sunday, 30 September 2018 at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. Attendance is free for all registered team members. There will be opportunities to reserve extra spaces for guests, possibly at a cost. Exact venue details will be communicated at a later stage.

Teams will be invited to display their solar cars and engage with the public at the V&A Waterfront Clock Tower prior to and after the award ceremony.

Please advise the organisers if you require camping accommodation after the event.
