#16 Solar Car Race in the Atacama Desert

In the Atacama Desert in northern Chile, ​​an unconventional car race has been created: all of its contestants are propelled only by solar energy. Being the driest place in the world and thanks to the Atacama’s 320 days of radient sunshine a year, it was ideal for the first competition of its kind in Latin America.

Unlike other solar races, the Atacama Solar Challenge has many slopes, making vehicle movement more challenging.
