The University of Calgary's Solar Car Team has had an exciting last few days testing their new car called "Schulich Delta" at the Varsity Speed Park in southeast Calgary. Today's event included a chance for local media to catch a glimpse of the car in action. Representatives from AGP, the City of Calgary, the Haskayne School of Business, CBC Calgary and the Calgary Herald were in attendance. Popeye Media had a chance to attend and capture the video and photos seen below.
The main event of the car's journey will be a 3000km race across Australia called the 2013 World Solar Challenge. This year, the U of C team made the leap of entering the Cruiser class which judges vehicles not only on efficiency, but also on the payload carried as well as practicality.
