List of teams participating in the 2013 World Solar Challenge

World_Solar_Challenge_logoAt the time of writing (january 2013) the 2013 World Solar Challenge (WSC) is about nine months away, and I’m going to start compiling a list of teams that will participate in this event. I will leave this article as a reference at the top of the front page until the WSC starts. The teams are not in any particular order, really just the order I’ve discovered them. I’ve included teams in this who have just expressed the intention of participating in the 2013 WSC – I’ll remove those if I think it’s unlikely they’ll make it to the starting line.

If you have information on a team that’s not in the list, or a correction on a team that is in the list, please let me know through either Twitter or E-mail. Thank you!
