    I feel incredibly lucky to work for a company that supports a global event such as the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is a true demonstration of our company CSR beliefs. The Challenge supports the contribution to mobility and the future of transport. It encourages people to find solutions that help the next generation, and that value and conserve our environmental resources.

    The adventure - In many ways the physical journey, the culmination of years of planning and preparation, becomes a spiritual journey. Operating the solar vehicle through the remote heart of this ancient land is a life changing experience. Those who embrace it always seem to achieve a closer connection to nature, an awareness of our environment and return to their own lands as ambassadors of change. Seeing young people exploring their own minds. Encouraging them to live their dreams and achieve their goals.
