croatiaThere will be a group of students hoping that there is plenty of sun about on Saturday in Croatia as the first solar-powered car race is held in the central Croatian city of Sisak.

Solar cars, produced by students from technical schools in Sisak, Kutina, Velika Gorica, Zadar and Osijek, will take part in Saturday’s race. All of the solar cars in the race have been developed with the same basic design and architecture, but are all unique. The 540 W solar photovoltaic modules are mounted on an aluminum honeycomb structure and give the cars a 1,500 W or 2 horse power motor.
