We did it! In what is undoubtedly the toughest solar vehicle race in the world, Germany’s “Sonnenwagen” reached its goal: after five days and 3,022 kilometers, the vehicle engineered by students from Aachen crossed the finish line on Saturday in Adelaide, proud to be one of the best newcomers to the event.
The team celebrated their arrival at the finish line on Saturday as promised by jumping into the fountain on Victoria Square: “It’s so fantastic that we made it” Julia Cramer still cannot believe the “Sonnenwagen” team’s achievement at the World Solar Challenge in Australia. The CAS Refinish Marketing specialist reported on the race for Covestro, and cheered the team on from start to finish: “So many other participants got stuck along the way,” she says. “But ‘Sonnenwagen’ kept on going, right to the end – amazing!”
