American Solar Challenge

Summer 2020

The American Solar Challenge (ASC) is a multi-day, 2000 mile cross-country endurance race across North America. This event has a rich history with over two decades worth of races.

The routes vary, but are always designed to challenge teams. This race will push us to the limit as we race under real world driving conditions and thoroughly test the reliability of all on-board systems.

Western’s Sunstang Solar Car Project first completed the ASC in 1995 when the race was originally known as “Sunrayce“. Since then we have returned to compete in ASC races multiple times over our 26 year history. Sunstang plans for ASC 2020 to be our most successful race yet, with a goal of Top 5 in the Multi-occupant vehicle class.
