8 - 15 OCTOBER
The 2017 World Solar Challenge will span 3000 kilometers; starting in Darwin, Northern Territory on 8 October, 2017 and ending in Adelaide, South Australia on 15 October, 2017. The Cruiser Class race will consist a single-stage regularity trial. The teams will be ranked with a scoring algorithm which accounts for energy usage, vehicle occupancy, and practicality.
Daedalus placed 4th in WSC 2013, and Eos place 5th in WSC 2015. 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.
