Cruiser Class Judging

The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge isn't a race - it's about putting possibilities into practice. The Crusier Class World Solar Teams will wait with anticipation as expert judges assess their consumer-focussed designs.

Come along and see the judging take place as design innovation, environmental impact, ease of access, occupant space and comfort, ease of operation, style and suitability are all considered to find a car that does its job, and looks good doing it!

Before they make their way to Victoria Park to get ready to go home, the cars will be on display for you to check out in the middle of Victoria Square from approximately midday.

See the cars up close, before waving them off in the parade from 3.00pm. The cars will head East down Wakefield Street and arrive at Victoria Park.
