WSC The dust has settled on the World Solar Challenge here in Oz, with Japan's Team Tokai securing their second consecutive title.

El Reg's Special Projects Bureau followed the race all the way from Darwin to Brisbane - a challenging 2,998 kilometres from start line to chequered flag.

Along the way, we grabbed some video of the action, and although we were going to wait until getting back to Europe before getting stuck into some editing, we managed to put together a short scrapbook of some of our footage before jetting out of Oz.

Since it was knocked together in a Brisbane hotel room, and on a laptop which crawled wheezing under the weight of excessive hi-def rendering, the vid is lacking titles, voiceover and the obligatory didgeridoo ambient soundtrack. It does, however, give a bit of flavour as to just what Outback solar racing is all about. Enjoy.
