The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (BWSC) is the world’s premier solar-powered car race where young engineers from all over the world compete with their self-designed solar cars. The solar cars travel over 3,000 kilometers from Darwin in Northern Australia to Adelaide in South Australia over five days. Under the theme of “Dream bigger. Go farther,” Bridgestone supports the engineers’ efforts and passion to achieve their dreams.
