During the rally from Darwin in the north to Adelaide in the south of Australia, high-performance solar cells saw the SunRiser achieve speeds of up to 120 km/h. The 300 km route is extremely challenging but, thanks to its numerous test runs and preliminary tests, the vehicle handled it with complete reliability. A full service was carried out after every run. But our tools proved their worth and their reliability at all times, despite being under tremendous time pressure and having to cope with Australia's dusty environment. "When it comes to tools, GEDORE is simply the benchmark for quality. The tools are strong, durable, and fit perfectly in the hand. We are delighted that we have been able to win GEDORE to supply our tools," says Gerrit Telgmann, director of the mechanics team at the University of Bochum.
