Green Lightning was the result of two years of engineering! The light, mono-hulled, carbon body has enough space for innovative parts that have been built from scratch.
Two examples of these custom parts are the four wheel steering system and composite leaf springs. By using the four wheel steering system, the solar car can drive at an angle, which reduces aerodynamical resistance. The composite leaf springs contribute to the stability of the vehicle.

Top Dutch Solar Racing and other Solar Teams
It is no secret that the Benelux countries Netherlands and Belgium have already four very strong solar teams: Solar Team Twente, Vattenfall Solar Team (Delft), Solar Team Eindhoven and Agoria Solar Team (Leuven). While people may expect that this causes a lot of rivalry, that is not the case!
