Budding engineers and curious bystanders are all welcome in sunny Cyprus in June to witness the Cyprus Institute Solar Car Challenge.

The race takes place on the misleadingly named Daytona Race Track, in Tseri, and invites international teams to design, build and race their own solar vehicles.
Participants range from serious world-record breaking teams to holidaymakers out for a laugh in their own scrap heap challenge.

The CERN – European Organization for Nuclear Research – solar team also exhibit their 20-year-old vehicle, to demonstrate how far the field has come.
