World's Toughest Renewable Power RacePosted on Monday, October 4th, 2010 at 4:40 pm by Solar Energy USA
A 4000km renewable energy car race has been won by Tokai University. The South African event was won by the Japanese entry in a runaway. The car achieved top speeds of over 160 km/h! That is just over 100 mph!
Tokai University will be familiar to racing fans. The students recently competed in the Le Mans 24 Hour race in 2009 and will compete in the 1000km of Zhuhai on November 9th against some of the top professional racing teams in the world.
Not a bad resume for a group of college students.
