Website Update

The new-look World Solar Challenge website has just gone live - we're proud of it and look forward to your patronage.

Things to note:

  • This BLOG will continue to be used for announcements relating to the event, and closer to the event we hope to have a few guest bloggers join the ranks.
  • There is now a dedicated YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/worldsolarchallenge
  • Shortly we'll be posting photos from past events online and you'll be able to browse and download these photos for your enjoyment.
  • The Yahoo! mailing list continues to be used for interested people, both participants and spectators. If this is your first Challenge, it's a good place to search for and ask the myriad questions you'll come up against: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wsc/
As you might know we're intending to provide satellite tracking for each solar-team in the 2011 event - it's been a long time in the making and we're very excited with the insights this will give spectators across the planet - not to mention mum and dad who'll be able to track the progress of their progeny across the country.

The Global Green Challenge has been reborn as the World Eco Challenge - to keep in spirit with the World Solar Challenge and the website at: http://www.worldecochallenge.org/ is expected to be updated over the next few months.

Enjoy and Be Part of It!
