From the Spartan austerity of solar cars to the production car luxury of the Eco Challenge, as a driver, a supporter, a guest or a volunteer, prepare yourself for the drive of your life. There are 38 Solar cars and teams from 17 countries, including participants from Australia, Canada, Netherlands, China, United Kingdom, USA, Turkey and India to name a few, as well as participants from major manufacturers including GM Holden, Volvo, Hyundai, Suzuki, Skoda, Ford, KIA, BMW, HSV and other group participants poised to take on the Eco Challenge category of the Global Green Challenge.
