Stanford Solar Car has arrived in Australia!

The Stanford Solar Car team has arrived in Australia and our car finally cleared customs & quarantine yesterday! Going forward, we’ll be doing pre-race testing with our race crew of 20 until the race, the 2017 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, which starts October 8. In mid-September, we’re moving from our current station in Adelaide to the Outback. There we will be camping, practicing race positions, and improving the vehicle until the race, so stay tuned for more.
