We are Top Dutch Solar Racing!

We are a unique multidisciplinary team of motivated students with different fields of expertise, ranging from engineering to communication.                         

Building on previous experiences and knowledge, our goal is to raise the bar on innovation and construct a new, highly efficient solar car. This all, while also creating an optimal learning environment for all members.

Together with our partners, we innovate solar technology and strive towards a sustainable future.

We will race again - during the Moroccan Solar Challenge 2021!

After we received the unfortunate news that the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2021 was cancelled, we decided to keep fighting and look for an alternative race. Together with other European solar teams, we organized the Moroccan Solar Challenge 2021. This alternative race will take place from October 25th until October 29th 2021 and will lead us 2400km through the Sahara desert and the Atlas mountains. We are looking forward to this exciting new race and can't wait to compete with teams from all across Europe!

Green Lightning

Green Lightning, TDSR's first solar car, had to be built in less than two years. During those years, our engineers have done the research, designing, prototyping, testing and optimizing, with the support of our helpful partners! With a super efficient electromotor, high-tech solar array with innovative coating, a battery box that we designed ourselves and a feather light carbon body, we took on the solar challenge in Australia! Now, it is up to the 2021 team to do the same, to build a Green Lightning 2.0 and take on the challenge on their own!

What does it take?

This project started in February 2017 with four guys who had a dream; taking on a complex, innovative project in which they could take on a big technological challenge. By finding the right people to support their idea, gathering an ambitious team and focusing a lot on working together we’ve grown until what we are now. A close team, that works day and night on their road to Adelaide, on their road to putting the North of the Netherlands on the map!
