The BWSC is a 3000km Race from Darwin to Adelaide. The solar car has been built over the past 4 years by the students of Ardingly and Ifield Collages. 

The Car has already completed 1000km representing GB in the European and French Solar races coming 10th and 4th. The Solar project works with many local companies; especially Blue Lizzard, Cirrus Laser, Cordek, Intitude of Motoring Industry, Lincoln Binns, Time24, Trackmaster, X-Bex and Brighton & Surrey Universities.
