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!

On February 11th, we received the unfortunate news that the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2021 has been cancelled. With the risks and uncertainties of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it isn't safe for the organisation to host the race. But though we may not race in Australia this year, we will race again! We are confident in our perseverance as a team and are looking for alternatives as we speak. We are keeping all the options open and are determined to keep going!

European SOlar Challenge 2020

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!

Driven to get there

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!
