Solar race in Australia - level 2
In 1987, the first Bridgestone World Solar Challenge happened. Cars which were powered only by the sun took part in the race. They travelled 3,000 kilometres from Darwin to Adelaide. A 1,000-watt car could complete the trip in just 50 hours.
This year, there are 47 teams. The 2015 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is the largest solar electric vehicle event anywhere in the world.
Difficult words: solar (relating to the sun), challenge (a test; something difficult), vehicle (something which moves – a car, for example).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
