A 3,000km solar car race across Australia has a winner.

The Japanese Tokai University won the extreme solar car race across Australia. The World Solar Challenge goes over 3,000km from Darwin to Adelaide through the Australian outback.

Tokai was in a tight race towards the end against the Nuon team from he Netherlands. But Nuon ran out of power towards the end leaving them with the second spot.

Such events are great to push innovation for solar power. Driving a solar powered car is though still a very distant dream. The race cars are basically just one giant solar panel with a small seat for the driver.
