ANZEC member Tony Viren’s, two time winner of the round the world solar car challenge, delivered an entertaining presentation outlining the mentality, physicality and technology that it takes to win in this challenging field. Tony’s insights and story led to many conversations that offered him suggestions for his next solar adventure challenge.
