Since 1990, the University of Michigan Solar Car Team has been designing, building, and racing America's best solar vehicles. With 6 consecutive National Championships, 9 overall, 5 Top-3 World finishes, and 1 International Championship, we are America's number one team. Our team's legacy of excellence has been upheld over its history.

This year, we celebrate our team's 25th anniversary of solar car racing. With a 4th place finish within an hour of 1st place at the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, we are America's number one team.
