DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: I had the opportunity to visit the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2019. The World Solar Challenge is a car race of vehicles mainly powered by photovoltaics. The race always starts in Darwin/Australia in the Northern Territory and leads from north to south through the whole continent from Australia to Adelaide in the south. The route is about 3000 km through the harsh conditions of the continent. The teams consist mainly of students and the vehicles are built and operated by students. In this film there are some impressions of the qualifing on the Darwin race track, the scruitining and the start in the centre of Darwin. Unfortunately I was a bit late for the start and could only see the last two cars starting.
