  • I notice Tesla is going down the road of auto pilot cars. This is a feature I would like to see electric car makers incorporate into their designs. The Australian Solar Challenge is under way at this moment with solar powered cars driving 3000 kilometres from Darwin at the North of Australia to Adelaide in the South.

    The Dutch entry is spectacular. It is in the Cruiser Class. That is, designed as a road car. It seats four people. And it is the fastest car in the field. Grid positions are defined by a hot lap at the local motor racing circuit. This four seater solar powered family car was the fastest in the field.
