Isaac Martin (2020) and the ANU Solar Racing Team featured in The Canberra Times

18 April 2023

The ANU Solar Racing Team, including Tuckwell Scholar Isaac Martin (2020) as the project lead, is preparing a third-generation, lightweight, carbon- fibre solar car for the 3,022-kilometre World Solar Challenge from Darwin to Adelaide.
The solar car parts are built by students in a workshop on campus, with the carbon- fibre chassis the only major component built externally by a Sydney firm.

 The biggest challenge for the team will be cooling the vehicle's battery. Crossing the Stuart Highway, temperatures in the vehicle will hit beyond 40 degrees, and drivers adjusting themselves to the heat conditions while they sit inside the small canopy.
