Racing with the Sun! That’s what the Cal State L.A. Solar Eagle III did… and won! Gathering energy through solar panels, the flame-yellow, battery-powered vehicle covered 1,230 miles at an average speed of 43.29 mph in winning Sunrayce 97, a cross-country solar car competition! Incredibly, the Solar Eagle never broke down once during the 10-day intercollegiate race – not even a flat tire! Congratulations to the Cal State L.A. team of students and staff!
