18 - 25 OCTOBER
The 2015 World Solar Challenge spanned 3000 kilometers; starting in Darwin, Northern Territory on 18 October, 2015 and ending in Adelaide, South Australia on 25 October, 2015. The Cruiser Class race consisted of two stages, split by a required overnight stop in Alice Springs where cars were able to recharge their battery. In the 2013 World Solar Challenge, the Cruiser Class had been allowed to charge in three locations, so this new requirement forced innovation.
Eos completed the 2015 World Solar Challenge in 58 hours and 45 minutes, finishing fifth in our class. As we prepare for the 2017 World Solar Challenge, we are looking into ways that will improve the practicality of our car as well as the efficiency.
