Dyplast ISO-C1 Racing thru
the Desert with the University of Minnesota!
About a year ago Dyplast donated a large block of ISO-C1/10.0 (10 lb/ft3 polyisocyanurate rigid foam) to the University of Minnesota. UMN had the ISO-C1 block milled and polished to the sleek shape of the car, and then used the rigid shape as the mold for a solar powered car. This car, named Daedalus, is in route to compete in Australia's World Solar Challenge 2013, an international Solar Powered Car race beginning in the northern city of Darwin on 6 October and racing 3,000 - kilometers (1,864 - miles) across the Australian Outback down the center of Australia. Throughout this week long race the team will travel through Tennant Creek, Alice Springs, and Coober Pedy before ending on the 13th in the southern city of Adelaide.
