The Solar cars, competing in the World Solar Challenge within the GGC event will start on Saturday 24th October and will race ‘dawn to dusk’ – they are expected to start arriving from mid week.
The Eco Challenge cars (such as the Tesla Roadster) are not racing, they are competing against their manufacturers stated performance figures, with the aim being to prove, and hopefully to better, those performance figures in real world conditions over a (very) long real world road.
