Every one of our cars are typically designed within a two year long cycle, beginning and ending with our participation in the World Solar Challenge, a biennial 3,022 km race spanning the entirety of the Australian continent.
First established in 1987, the World Solar Challenge is designed to push the capabilities of each solar car and its crew to their absolute limits in the outback, driving a route from Darwin to Adelaide over the course of 5-6 long days. Often considered the worlds most influential and prestigious solar car challenge, it attracts competitors and news coverage from all over the world, with university teams from over 20 different countries.
For Blue Sky, the World Solar Challenge marks the ultimate culmination of two intense years of hard work. From training new recruits to testing our cars on the road, each World Solar Challenge completed is a testament to the passion of our team.
