Event information

The Sasol Solar Challenge works hard to make the event as logistically easy as possible for teams, officials, supporters and spectators.

Important dates are as follows (click here to download):

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 NECSA where space will be allocated to each team two weeks prior to scrutineering.

Zwartkops Raceway has a restaurant where teams can buy food and drinks.

During the event

Daily accommodation is available to all teams. This will typically be camping space with 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 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 2016 Sasol Solar Challenge award ceremony will be from 11h00 to 14h00 on Sunday 2 October at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. Attendance is free for all team members but a fee will apply for sponsors and family. Exact venue details will be communicated at a later stage.

Teams are invited to display their solar cars and engage with the public at the V&A Waterfront after the award ceremony.

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