I hope it doesn't go up against a Japanese whaling ship... the last solar powered vessel we made didn't fair too well.

I laugh at this stuff. Instead of setting speed records and participating in other pointless competitions they need to start making these things more like cars if they want people to switch over from gasoline to electric. It's possible but there gonna have to start by making something a person can actually fit in, 2' of leg room, arm rests and large cup holders for 7-Eleven Big Gulp. After all of that, make it affordable and reliable.

Until then I will stick to my tree killing 15mpg tahoe .

Get a solar powered car to travel 400 miles on a single charge at 55mph carrying 4 people. That would be progress. This is useless.
