14-10-2013 - Aurora Evolution wins the GoPro Adventure Class of the 2013 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge
The Aurora Solar Car Team is proud to announce that its car Aurora Evolution has taken out the GoPro Adventure Class in the 2013 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. This win continues Aurora’s tradition of participation in the World Solar Challenge events with the team partaking in every event since 1987, and continues our recent run of good results in the event.
This event and win has successfully demonstrated and tested a number of new key electrical systems needed for our under development concept car, Aurora Solaris. These new developments include the new internally designed Aurora/Symtech Maximum Power Point Trackers, which the team in collaboration with Symmetrical Technologies Pty Ltd (Symtech) will be making available for purchase.
Aurora would like to thank all of our 2013 sponsors and partner organisations for making this win possible, making special mention of key partners CSIRO, Michelin Australia, RACV, Sunpower and Symmetrical Technologies without whom this win wouldn’t have been possible.
We plan to use the success from this event as motivation and as a driver to continue pushing on with work on Aurora Solaris so stay tuned both on our website and Facebook for further updates. A gallery of select photos from the 2013 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is available here.
