The famous Aurora 101 solar car has been on a holiday in Rio de Janeiro and has enjoyed a 40 day voyage direct to Nagoya, Japan to run the in the superb solar car "Dream Cup' at the International Race Circuit, Suzuka.
SWEET SWEET SUGAR LOAF
One more event but possibly the most fun. A parade of the most interesting cars from Bibendum 2010 at Flamengo Beach against a background of Rio’s most famous landmark, Sugar Loaf.
This required an early start from the Rio Centro pavilion. Seven thirty in the morning. Thankfully everything had been loaded the night before and it took little additional work to join a convoy of trucks taking vehicles through the centre of Rio to this beautiful area of Flamengo. All was helped by the fact that today was a public holiday.
