Despite the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, about 15 solar cars will appear at the start of the 24 hours iLumen European Solar Challenge on Saturday, September 19.
Unfortunately, a number of teams had to cancel their participation, including the Durham University Electric Motorsport team.
The team members of DUEM came with the brilliant idea to ride their own virtual iESC. Under the spirit of the event, they rented Ouston Airfield as the perfect location for this exciting effort.
With their virtual participation, DUEM hopes to be able to take a shot at the Spirit of the Event trophy.
During the race weekend we will share live images of DUEM’s attempt via our official Social Media channels.
