L2B solar run
THE "LONDON TO BRIGHTON SOLAR CAR RUN" - L2B 2008 - Rules
Coming from me, this is a bit unusual, cos as an inventor I'm a natural rule breaker. That's what inventing is, extending the known into the untried, with the aim of advancement. However, most organised motor sports need some kind of order to make an event work. So...

The L2B rules are designed to give everyone the best possible chance of competing, against a reasonable budget, to include: schools, colleges, university's and private or family teams. Where the total spend is just £3,000, it is thought such a threshold will allow just about everyone who wishes to compete, to do so, taking into account the possibility of funding via sponsorship.
Concerning Total Spend, contestants will not be allowed to spend more than £3,000 on their vehicle under any circumstances, which could lead to disqualification. This sum includes: components, materials and services. Teams will be required to keep receipts for everything they purchase in connection with the design and construction of their vehicle for scrutiny, prior to entry.
Teams may expend as much effort and time as they can spare to design, build, market, test their vehicle and support their team members. **Driver age limits to be confirmed.
Teams may use the facilities at their disposal, to include home workshops, school, college and university equipment, for which there must be no charge and permission for use from the administrators.
Vehicle manufacturers or vehicle component makers may not enter the event, nor provide expert assistance to teams. They may however sponsor a team financially.
Class 1 entrants may be eligible for a cash prize, dependent upon us finding a Sponsor to underwrite the event and agree a suitable purse.
Class 2 entrants will not be eligible for a cash prize, and will be listed in order of completing the race after Class 1 entrants. However, they will be able to enjoy taking part and running against other Class 2 entrants.
For clarification on any aspect of the above, please refer to Ace or our Event Manager.
PRIME SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY
If your company would like to participate in this event, help budding students, engineers and artists to experience the thrill of competing in a vehicle they have helped to design and build, we would like to hear from you urgently. It is not possible to stage an event like this without corporate backing. At time of writing there is no solar event in the UK. Ideally, we are seeking a consumer electronics company (telecommunications or computers) or financial institution.
