Texas To Canada Solar Car Race Ends

Posted by administrator in Science, Technology (Wednesday July 23, 2008 at 10:49 am)

Winning Car From University Of Michigan Wins For 5th Time

Calgary- The long 2008 North American Solar Car Race is now officially over, and all 15 solar car teams finished the 3,862-kilometre race in fine style.

The winning vehicle was the entry from the University of Michigan, which crossed the finish line in first place for the fifth time, about nine hours in advance of the second place finisher.


Of the 25 cars that began the race in Plano, Texas only 15 made it to the finish line.


The cars averaged between 80 and 100 km/hour and the car from the University of Michigan actually got a 20-minute penalty for speeding.
