Well it's on again. The 2019 Solar Challenge from Darwin to Adelaide.
I was lucky enough to be in Katherine, 8 years ago when they went through. Magnificent sight to see them on the road & rolling in to the check point.

I take it there is a limit to how many cells they can have?
A lot of the cars seem to have plenty of vacant real estate they could put more cells on.

There are heaps of rules & regs. Max panel size is one of them. Also depends on the class of car as well.
