Until the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge starts

The solar challenge is a race through the Australian Outback, in which student teams participate with solar cars they have built themselves. The race is over 3000 km long and takes place on the 13th of October until the 20th of October 2019. The challenge starts in Darwin and we finish in Adelaide.

The car

Green Lightning

Our solar car has been built in less than two years. During those years our engineers have been doing 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 will take on the solar challenge in Australia.

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!
