The American Solar Challenge (ASC) a competition to design, build and race solar-powered cars in a cross-country event will see competitors cover more than 1,000 miles from Oklahoma to Illionois next month.
The 2010 American Solar Challenge (ASC2010) 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 route from Tulsa to Chicago. 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.
