16-23 October the World Solar Race will be held again. The website has (finally) acceptable quality, although for a hightech event, still lacks on its front page things as social media..(like twente for example). Similar not all teams have their homepage in english. But participating is more important than looking good on paper/computer screens of course.
One of the teams who does have excellent communication channels is the Nuna 6 team. Its one of the favorites and they presented their car this week. Less drag, lighter weight, on pilot individual size fitted design (!). Impressive and notice the evolution in this race: Nuna 1 was twice as heavy as Nuna 6.
But Nuna has serious competition. Last year winner Tokai for example went unbeaten from the start, never really in danger. Their car has been improved as well, despite the tsunami events…Again, we’re missing a good english website about them this year. So lets leave it with the simple video below?
