The 2010 American Solar Challenge is a competition to design, build, and drive solar-powered cars in a cross-country time/distance rally event. Teams compete in a 1100 mile drive from Broken Arrow, OK to Naperville, IL. The route has been chosen to combine pieces of old routes used in previous events, giving a bit of an historical tribute for the 20 years of organized events in North America.

Seventeen international teams from the United States, Canada, Germany, and Taiwan are registered to compete this year, including the SolarWorld No. 1 car that was created by the Bochum University of Applied Sciences in Germany.

In the 1,100-mile race, the Bochum team will compete in timed stages as it vies to complete the every-other-year contest with the lowest total elapsed time. Its vehicle will harness high-efficiency photovoltaic cells to demonstrate mobility without fossil fuels and carbon emissions.

“Our solar racer will model the clean power from the sun across an expanse of the U.S. landscape, where SolarWorld has pioneered solar technology since the mid-1970s,” said Kevin Kilkelly, president of SolarWorld California, the company’s sales and marketing unit.

Also competing is a team from Oregon State University in Corvallis. Its racer is powered by solar cells made in Hillsboro, Ore., where SolarWorld operates its U.S. headquarters and the nation’s largest solar factory.
