Sinag Solar Car Is Class Leader

October 26th, 2007 By: atomicgirl

Sinag Solar CarOur very own solar car, Sinag, is now taking the lead in its class, the Challenge Class, at the currently ongoing World Solar Challenge. Held in Australia - from Darwin to Adelaide, the World Solar Challenge makes solar vehicles run and complete a distance of over 3000 kilometers. The Challenge Class wherein Sinag belongs to has a total of 40 participants including our very own solar race car.Sinag is the very first fully functional solar vehicle in the country. And at the race, this solar car has already sped through half of the whole distance and is leaving all other solar race cars in its class eating its dust. Overall though, Sinag is holding on to 11th place but is moving trying to go faster so as to move up the ranks.

October 21st was when the race started and quite a number of teams from all around the globe joined. Most of the vehicles who have joined were actually products of the development and research done by governments or by companies who have become environmentally-conscious or who have just spurted a green mind.

Sinag was created by some mechanical and electronics and communications engineering students from De La Salle University with the help of some faculty from the same school. They were backed up and supported by great companies like Ford Philippines, Philippine Airlines, Shell, U-Freight, Motolite, San Miguel Corporation, SunPower, and Ventus.

Eric Tan is Sinag’s lead driver and he shares, “We are making good time so we can make it to Adelaide by Saturday or early Sunday morning. We just need to reach the next designated control stops before the deadline in order for us to be able to continue to race. Missing two control stops will disqualify us.”

Goodluck Sinag!

  5. Common sense would dictate that applying known carcinogens to the porous skin directly over your lymph nodes every day might not be the best idea. Not that there’s a steady rise in breast cancer in both men and women or anything. But hey, if a person wants to clog up their underarms with chemistry so they won’t sweat that’s their business.Gotta agree about the Desitin, that stuff really is the only thing that works!Report this comment as spam or abuse

  6. This product’s ingredient profile on the Earth’s Best website does not list “Syrup Solids”; however, buyers should be aware that the formula has recently changed to now include this ingredient. Their website has not yet been updated to reflect this (as of 7/18/2010).

  7. Today I was appreciating my mother. She has struggled with her weight her entire life and recently shed over 150 pounds! She cooked for my family and made sure we sat down to eat together at least a few nights a week always including a vegetable. As a result I started my love affair with cooking and food in her kitchen and I’ve never been on a diet once in my entire life while managing to be at a healthy weight.~Thanks Mom

  10. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  11. You have made some good points there. I checked on the net to find out more about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this site.

  12. I do love the way you have framed this specific problem plus it really does supply me personally a lot of fodder for thought. Nevertheless, through what precisely I have personally seen, I just simply hope when the reviews stack on that people today remain on point and in no way start on a soap box involving some other news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this exceptional piece and even though I can not go along with it in totality, I value your viewpoint.
