SolarFox: Arrival and assembly in Darwin

Solarfox arrived ahead of schedule in Darwin on Friday morning and was soon offloaded and unpacked, with all items apparently intact. This timely and safe arrival is predominantly down to the expert logitics planning and execution by Anne Stevens of CT Freight UK.

Reunited with their favourite solar car, the team got to work reassembling the car, including mounting the roll bar that had to be removed for transit.

This provided the team with their first experience of running with the wheel fairings in place, which will be used to reduce the aerodynamic drag of the front wheels.
