Why Solar Kilometres?

As a special opportunity for the World Solar Challenge 2017, we are allowing our supporters to get personally involved in our adventure across the Outback. Supporters can sponsor from 1 to 1000 kilometres of our journey, laying claim to a section of 3,000km which we will be traveling from Darwin to Adelaide in October 2017. Sponsorship can be in your own name or that of another person who you wish to receive the rewards.

The funds raised through this initiative will be used towards the final preparations of the competition vehicle and the logistics costs of the journey, including items from vehicle hire all the way through to nutrition for the brave souls who take on the challenge of driving the solar vehicle itself.

CUER covered 2,047km on solar power in the 2015 race, the best distance by a UK team since 2007, finishing ahead of competing teams from MIT and Durham University. For 2017 we plan to become the fastest UK team on record by completing the full challenge on solar power.
