Gentlemen, Start Your (Solar-Powered) Engines!

Needless to say, that’s sexist and inaccurate phrasing… just thought I’d get that out..

Several items around the web on solar car races:

  • From ENN, an an announcement of the winners of the 10th annual Dell-Winston School Solar Car Challenge, an event for teenaged solar-power engineers. The winning teams hailed from Saint Thomas Academy in Mendota, MN and Houston Vocational Center in Houston, MS.
  • From Green Car Congress, news that the “11-day North American Solar Challenge (NASC) ‘rayce’ [kicked] off [Sunday], with 20 qualifying cars racing 2,500 miles (4,023 km) from Austin, Texas to Calgary, Alberta.” You can follow the “rayce” on the website.

Look out, NASCAR…
