Characteristics of team

Our team is run completely by students. We pride ourselves in designing and building as much of the vehicle as possible by ourselves. We are proud to have qualified for and finished every race we have entered.

Team's "ambitions"
for this year's BWSC

We strive to work together well as a team to do our best while competing against an elite class of Cruiser teams, while enjoying the incredible experience that is the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.

Bridgestone Americas has been supporting teams in North America since 2014 and we look forward to continuing this support for the 2017 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. These students have been very enjoyable to work with, allowing us into their facilities to show us some the amazing work they are doing.

I wish our teams from the U.S.A. and Canada the absolute best. Most of all, I hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable race. These teams deserve to do very well with all of the hard work and time they put into these vehicles.
