They may be the world's funniest looking race cars.

"Carbon fiber frame with solar panels on top, it's padded with foam and they go really fast," said high school senior George Jouflas. 

Jouflas is the reigning champion of Solar Rollers.

"They take on a project like this and learn about solar cells, lithium batteries, working with carbon fiber, all those things," said Solar Rollers creator Noah Davis.

Built from scratch, they go 28 to 30 miles an hour and only briefly stop to charge under blinding lamps that were originally made for a marijuana grow house. The contest could soon go international.

"And then it'll be interplanetary eventually if we can make it," said Davis.
