In July 1990, 32 teams of some of North America's brightest college students took to the road in solar-powered vehicles they had built during the previous year and a half.[1] The GM Sunrayce USA route covered more than 1,800 miles, from Florida to Michigan.[2] Three of the top finishers won a trip to Australia in November to compete in the 1990 World Solar Challenge.
