Durham University Solar Car Outpaces Cambridge

(24 May 2010)

The Durham University Solar Car (DUSC) recently met Cambridge University's solar car in a one-on-one event at Rockingham Speedway, organised by Greenfleet.

The Durham and Cambridge vehicles, veterans of trans-continental races across North America and Australia respectively, had never previously competed head to head. Durham comfortably outpaced Cambridge, lapping the Rockingham track at an average speed of 54mph.
