08 Sep Caspian Sea to Persian Gulf Tour
The Persian Gazelle Design and manufacturing Center decided to arrange a tour of the Persian Gazelle III from Caspian Sea to Persian Gulf. It was intended to test the solar car and measure its performance characteristics through the roads. Moreover, the introduction of the environmentally friendly technologies developed during these years in the PGDM center to our society including students and other people was another objective of this tour. There are many questions and enquiries raised about the Persian Gazelle which were answered face to face by the members of the team as the solar car makes its many stops along the journey. The other purpose of this grand tour was to promote the Persian Gazelle and attract sponsors for the future activities.
Different events took place to attract people, sponsors from the local industry and commerce.
The tour started on 26th of Tir (16th of July) 2016 and lasted for 8 days.
