Christchurch's solar racing car Solar Fern joins Waikato University's electric commuter car to travel to Invercargill with Solar World GT, Germany's state-of-the-art twin-seater on the first solar-powered world tour. Data gathered on the trip will inform the development of infrastructure to support electric vehicles becoming the norm on New Zealand roads.
Solar Fern will then head north to Cape Reinga to set national records, in the hope of attracting international vehicles here to break them. Before they depart Christchurch they receive a blessing from The Wizard.
