The Solar Vehicle Project, a group of undergraduate students who have researched, designed, and constructed a solar vehicle, is travelling to Australia at the end of the summer to represent the University of Minnesota at the 2017 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. This 3,000 kilometer race from Darwin to Adelaide, Australia will test the solar-electric vehicle prototype the team spent two years creating against the best Solar Car teams in the world, spanning over 30 countries. During the race, the vehicle charges primarily from the sun as it speeds across some of the world’s most challenging landscapes.

The teams are completely self-sufficient during the race, only checking in at 9 mandatory check points where teams charge from the sun, switch drivers, and are updated with the latest information on weather and their position in the field.

This will be the team’s fourth time competing in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge; in 2015, the vehicle was the fifth best Cruiser Car in the world! Make a gift to help the team ship their car to Australia and represent the U of M in this adventure of a lifetime.
