MIT SEVT’s application to participate in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge this October has been accepted! The team is now working hard to complete the car and plan out the logistics of getting the team and the car to Darwin, Australia for the start of the race. The 3000 km race takes place from October 18th-October 25th across the entire Australia Outback.

Needless to say, we are very excited to be racing in the world’s most prestigious solar car race, and though we know we will face many challenges between here and the finish line, we’re excited to make it happen.
