Two of the teams competing in the bi-annual Pretoria to Cape Town Sasol Solar Challenge smashed records this past weekend.
Dutch team Nuon broke the record for the furthest distance travelled overall by a solar-powered car in a single day, a massive 707 kilometres.
The South African teams also held their own, with the North-West University’s solar team breaking the record for the longest distance covered in a single day by a South African team – an incredible 560 kilometres in their custom-built solar car.
There’s still a long way to go, as teams race for eight days on a route between Pretoria and Cape Town which covers more than 2,000 kilometres.
