THE "LONDON TO BRIGHTON SOLAR CAR RUN" 2008

 

We are organising the above event for the summer of 2008.  Any School, College, University or other person or organisation interested in applying to compete in the Run, should please email Ace at their earliest opportunity - see contacts below.

The rules of the event are designed to give everyone the same chance of competing, to include: schools, colleges, university's and private or family teams - a level playing field.

 

To achieve this aim, competitors should spend a prescribed amount on materials and components (no more) and only so much (fixed) area of solar panel is allowed.  You may spend as much time designing and building you solar car as you can afford.

 

If you have never thought about building a solar car and wonder what it involves, take a look at the pages listed below.  Please note that these cars in these articles are built on a much higher budget than our rules allow.  You may build parts yourself to save money, but most competitors will be using cheaply available off the shelf products.

 

When you email us with your interest, please include your name, age and the names of anyone likely to be in your team.  Also include your address or the team's headquarters, school, college, etc.  Pictures will be required for official entry forms, not yet available. Please do not supply these yet.
