Dutch Students Prepare for Fifth World Solar Challenge Race Win

A team of Dutch students are using carbon fibers and tailored drivers' suits to make their car faster than ever in the 2011 World Solar Challenge in Australia. They've already won the trans-continental event four times and now, they're determined to make it five.

A team of Dutch students have been testing what they hope will prove to be the world's fastest solar car at this year's World Solar Challenge. Dozens of teams from the world's most prestigious technical universities and colleges will compete from October 16-23. The course runs from Darwin to Adelaide in a single stage, for a total distance of 1,864 miles (3,000 kilometers). Thirteen Dutch students put their studies on hold for a year-and-a-half to design Nuna 6, the latest version of solar car Nuna.
