How many times has your team participated in the event?

The BWSC 2017 will be our seventh entry.

What is the design philosophy behind your solar car?

The car must embody professionality. The mechanical components need to be very performant and the electronical systems reliable. "We've done everything we could" should be the feeling at the end of the BWSC.

What is unique about your solar car?

For the first time, we used 3D modular scanning on our solar car driver. This way, we could fit our solar car around our driver.

Why does your team value participating in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge?

We value being young engineers who not only design a car, but also build it and take it to the Australian Outback. It will be an amazing feeling to see our solar car driving on the streets of Australia.

What is the one thing your team is looking forward to when you visit Australia?

Meeting the other solar teams and hearing their story! We look forward to share ours with them and the world.
