This is the only solar car in Kentucky, Gato Del Sol III. It runs exclusively on solar energy and will be competing against other prestigious engineering universities in the 2008 North American Solar Challenge.
The challenge consists of a 2,400 mile race beginning in Texas and ending in Canada during the month of July. The team is currently making their way through Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Inclement weather has been concern as storms have popped up along their route. Fortunately they have had ample sunshine during the morning hours to fully charge Gato Del Sol III.
The team is currently in Sioux Falls, SD and will continue on towards Winnipeg. Calgary, Alberta is their final destination.
