We have a winner! The 2007 Panasonic World Solar Challenge (PWSC) began on Sunday October 21 at 8a in Darwin, Australia and will end Thursday October 25 in Adelaide. This is the 20th annual running of this event that pits vehicles from all over the world against each other in a friendly competition. Each vehicle is powered only by the sun's rays and must travel 3,000 kilometers in a test of strategy and endurance. The Nuon Solar Team from the Netherlands was the first to arrive in Adelaide with their Nuna4 solar car. This is the fourth year that the Nuon Solar Team has finished in first place. Of special interest to automation folks is the University of Waterloo's Midnight Sun IX car. As reported in this blog on October 15, the Midnight Sun is sponsored by Woodhead Industries, a division of Molex Incorporated. The Midnight Sun moved up one spot to 19th place.
