Shot Notes

This amazing looking car is named Priscilla and was put together by the Australian Technology Network, which is a collaboration between five universities in Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland and Western Australia. This makes it Australia’s only national team. It arrived in Coober Pedy today at the 2nd charging station for the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. The Cruiser class of solar cars are allowed two charging stops between Darwin and Adelaide. Whereas the Challenger class cars do the whole 3000km with only the power of the sun they collect en route. I met the designer of the body today who is also a mechanic. He offered to tune up the engine in my van as he could hear it was struggling to keep up with the solar cars.
