Solar Cars

In a video we watched we learnt that the driver in a solar powered car has to lie down we think its a minus because you could get a really bad cramp in your neck. We also learnt that the car was covered in solar panels to make it go because it was solar powered. We think that its a good idea because you don't have to pay for petrol because you get the energy from the sun. The car was specially made for a solar powered car race.The car is probably three times our weight.
