23-10-2011 - Aurora's World Solar Challange 2011 Wrap Up

In October Aurora joined 38 teams from 21 countries in the 2011 Veolia World Solar Challenge.

The Challenge saw the teams racing each other – using the power of the sun – on the 3,021km journey from Darwin to Adelaide.

Despite a budget just 5 – 10 per cent of the budget of the top teams, Aurora finished ahead of several prestigious institutions, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) (USA), Stanford University (USA) and pre-challenge favourites Group T University (Belgium) sponsored by solar cell company Umicore.
