How many times has your team participated in the event?

We founded our team two years ago, to participate in this great event. This year´s BWSC will be our very first time in a solar race.

What is the design philosophy behind your solar car?

“Respect and robustness!” This motto emerged throughout our design process. We want to get things right the first time!

What is unique about your solar car?

We have at least two areas of innovation: our advanced driving strategy and overall very high efficiency in the powertrain.

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

To us the BWSC is an opportunity to show the world how sustainable mobility already can be with the technology we have available today. It is our chance to contribute to the development of future mobility concepts.

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

One thing? There so many things we are really excited about! We are very passionate about the moment we will see our very own car at the start on Stuart Highway. We are also very excited to meet the other teams from all over the world!
