The contest vehicles are limited to the conditions of a closed track. One does not need solar power to go 15 mph in a stream liner. Morelli designed for road vehicles and understood the limits of ride height and ground clearance. Since angle of incidence has an affect on solar collectors, one might consider tracking mounts for cells under a clear skin.
