An informative, fascinating documentary paying tribute to an unsung founding father of renewable energy in Australia and the team of scientists and cycling enthusiasts who joined him on the World solar challenge in 1986. In the early days of solar vehicle racing, one of the most unlikely competitors was a Turkish nuclear physicist living in Australia named Ugur Ortabasi. He conceived a four-seated, solar-powered, tandem bicycle only a mother could love, but in true underdog fashion, it would go on to win the 1986 World Championships of Solar Vehicles. The story behind this unlikely victory was anything but sunshine and smooth sailing.
