The Basking Beastie goes on tour and meets HRH Princess Anne
7 Oct 2021
The ‘Basking Beastie’, the only Solar car allowed on UK roads, takes a summer tour
Once she received her UK Road Registration, there was no stopping the Basking Beastie this summer as she took in a 10 day tour of England and Scotland.
Her latest engagement was being presented to HRH Princess Anne at Time24 in Burgess Hill. The Basking Beastie is the only GB road registered solar car in the UK and is an example of how industry can be brought right into the heart of the classroom, equipping our pupils with World Ready skills beyond those examined by standard curriculums. Jasmine (Ardingly College) and Patricia (Ifield Community College) were able to explain their involvement in the solar project and their hopes for a successful cop26 (climate change conference) in Glasgow later this year.
