Penrith Mayor John Thain today visited the Western Sydney Solar Team. Council is a proud sponsor of the team, and the Mayor was excited to hear about local students competing against the world’s best universities in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. The Mayor was particularly interested in the design and construction of the car, and the innovation and initiative of the students in racing it across the outback. Council is looking forward to working with the team into the future.
