    I love this video. Check out the Illinois State University's solar car pit up against my Model S.

    Here are the facts I learned after Solar Car Vs Model S - Watt a race!:

    While it is cool, there is a few things to note. Since they are going around in circles, the Model S can't exactly move at full speed, even more so it seems the driver is intentionally slowing down (cause last thing they want to do is run over the other car). We also must remember that the outer rim of a circle has a longer distance to travel then the inner rim of the circle. So the Model S is actually traveling more distance then the other car.

    Never the less, it is interesting.

    Edit: Wait, is that you racing it?
