Shot Notes

This is Stella Era from Solar Team Eindhoven who are the reigning champions in the Cruiser Class of solar cars in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. Unlike the Challenger Class, which is all about speed. The Cruiser Class provides a platform where ideas can be tested for their practicality and commercialisation. This car, for example, not only seats 4 people, the battery has a 1800km range, and it can sense if it is parked in the shade and automatically move itself into the sun to charge. Despite its size, this is no slow coach, It currently leads the Cruisers and many of the Challengers too.

    Have you managed to photograph Cambridge University’s entry in this class?

    Before the race they spent so much time tinkering they missed their hot lap. I have not seen them on the road yet. The website says they have been trailered, which means they are out of the race but can continue if they wish.

    What a pity, but I see they are not the only ones in that class!

    Failure is always an option at the cutting edge.
