After just two days in the Sasol Solar Challenge, the North-West University's team has managed to break yet another record. It has become the first African team to travel 611km on one day - powered only by the sun!

On Saturday it started in 8th position, but slowly but surely, it has edged into 4th place.

If everything goes according to plan, it will reach the Gariep-dam by the end of the day.
