On wednesday the 3rd of May we went to Solar Sport One (As you maybe already know the Dutch Solar Challenge will continue under a new name: Solar Sport One) for a team meeting. The meeting was about the new form of Solar racing and the changes in rules, classes and types of races. We discussed the possibility to merge the A-class boats and the Top-class boats together and what the benefits and the disadvantages are. De race organisation listened to the feedback and will use it to form the next generation of solar racing.
Trials with the new rules and the merged classes will be held in Lelystad and Rotterdam in june and september respectively. We are really curious to the outcome.
