Our challenge

Participating in The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge takes more than technical innovations, outside the box thinking and designing the perfect parts. It takes commitment, patience, ambition, perseverance, entrepreneurship and a lot of time. Not only do we need to build the perfect solar car, we also need to organize an entire travel for 20 people to Australia for two months; we need to find the right partners to work with; we need to make sure everyone can work together and we need to make sure our drivers are prepared for their challenge

That is what we are in for and that’s why this project is so valuable; countless opportunities to develop ourselves in order to get there, together.

3000 km through the outback

With a brand new solar car, we will take on the challenge to drive through the middle of Australia. From Darwin to Adelaide in (hopefully a little bit less than) 7 days. During the race, which is held from 22nd until 30th October 2021, we can start driving at 8:00 and we have to stop at 17:00. During the day we encounter pit stops, where the team has a mandatory stop of 30 minutes in which no one can touch the solar car. At 17:00 we have to stop wherever we are, meaning we have to set up camp in the middle of nowhere and prepare for the next day.

Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2019

In 2019, we participated for the very first time in the World Solar Challenge. It was an awesome experience in which we've learned a lot. Our most precious moments? Camping in the beautiful Australian outback. The energy of our team during the race. The moment we finished with Green Lightning in Adelaide. And the fact we made it, together.

We are extremely proud with the result of finishing at 4th place! After 2,5 years of hard work, commitment and passion we've proven exactly what we believe in; by working together you can achieve anything!
