Already the largest solar event in the world, the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is back and bigger than ever in 2017, celebrating its 30th anniversary with a record breaking number of entries.

This year, a historic 50 teams from 26 countries will compete for the Challenger and Cruiser trophies, and battle for line honours across the 3,000km journey from Darwin to Adelaide, which commences on October 8.

Bridgestone Corporation returns as the principal title sponsor for the biennial event, a partnership that commenced in 2013. Bridgestone Australia will also be supporting four local Aussie teams competing in the event with tyre supply.

Adelaide University Solar Racing Team, UNSW Solar Racing Team – Sunswift, Western Sydney University Solar Car Project and Flinders University will all be running specially designed Bridgestone ‘ECOPIA with ologic’ tyres. The large diameter tyres will reduce deformation and rolling resistance, while enhancing vehicle aerodynamics and efficiency thanks to narrow tread width.

Since it began in 1987 with an inaugural field of 20 teams, the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge has grown leaps and bounds, attracting some of the brightest young minds from high-schools and universities across the globe, pushing the limits of technology and showcasing innovation.
