SolarWorld No.1

The SolarWorld No. 1 solar racer sponsored by SolarWorld AG crossed the finishing line in third place in the American Solar Challenge 2010 and also received the "People’s Choice Award" for the most popular vehicle of the race. Enthusiasm for the project is intended to draw young people's attention to the importance of engineering in the growing solar industry. www.solarworldno1.de
