Solar car on track for world record

post-image

Formula One veteran Prof Richard Hopkins will lead a team of UNSW engineering students and the Sunswift 7 vehicle they designed in a world-record attempt at the Australian Automotive Research Centre in rural Victoria.

It's hoped the race car, which is powered by a standard electric vehicle battery and 4.5 square metres of solar cells, will set a Guinness World Record for the fastest electric vehicle to travel more than 1000 kilometres on a single charge.

Following the potentially record-setting race, Prof Hopkins said the team will focus on a potentially larger goal: creating a mainstream solar-powered vehicle.
