Sasol has announced its title sponsorship of the Sasol Solar Challenge South Africa 2012, which is a two week countrywide endurance challenge of specially engineered solar-powered cars.

Held every two years, under the auspices of the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), this eco-efficiency challenge allows teams from around the world to congregate in South Africa to participate and demonstrate the sophistication and performance of solar-powered vehicles.

“We’re very excited about the Sasol Solar Challenge. Sasol is increasingly moving into the renewable energy space through Sasol New Energy and this is an ideal demonstration of the versatility of solar technology,” said Sasol New Energy Managing Director, Henri Loubser .
