The Nuon Solar Team has won the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (BWSC), the worldchampionship solar car racing in Australia. Nuna9 finished in Adelaide, their 3.000 km long journey across the Australian Outback took them 4 days and about 6 hours - despite rainfall, hard winds and thunderstorm which were cause for some nerve-racking moments in hours before. This is the Nuon Solar Team’s seventh championship title.
The team increased the lead over the major rivals, Michigan (USA), Tokai (Japan) and Punch Powertrain (Belgium), on the last racing day. Nuna9 reached a maximum velocity of 110 km per hour solely with the energy of the sun.
