2013 World Solar Challenge 9th Place


Designing a car for the 2013 World Solar Challenge presented new challenges with a four-wheeled configuration and an upright driver seating position as mandated by new race regulations. The team rose to the occasion with the innovation of an asymmetric design, which greatly improved the aerodynamics and power usage of the car. Although the car crashed during the race due to extremely high crosswinds, the driver was completely safe. The team was able to repair the significant damage on time to complete the race successfully, and took 9th place overall.
