The Firstpoint team are in Darwin and Adelaide this week managing the media for the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. Here are some photos of the TV, radio, online and photo journalists from around the world covering the event. We are providing daily video feeds from the Outback across Australia and around the world together with two media releases a day to accompany the images.
