Australian Solar Car Breaks World Speed Record


Last Friday, with racer Barton Mawer behind the wheel, the previous record of 49.09 mph
was shattered when IVy was clocked at 55.14 mph average over two 2500 meter (1.56 mile)
runs in opposite directions at an Australian Air Force base in the town of Nowra.
IVy’s top speed through the lights was  56.85 mph.

Not only does the Sunswift team hope to inspire the next generation,
but they also aim to inspire their competitors to advance the field of solar automobiles.
