Characteristics of team

We are a fully student-run undergraduate design team that specializes in solar car construction and racing. The team is made up of full-time students at the University of Toronto, who dedicate their time to this amazing experience without pay/academic credits. The team is not exclusive to engineering students, and includes people from the Rotman School of Commerce, and the Faculty of Arts and Science at the University. We are mostly consisted of first and second year university students, and pride ourselves in our teamwork.
This year around, we have implemented novel technologies and measures to make a competitive car to race in the BWSC17!

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

We have one simple yet ambitious goal: Finish with a Top 5 placement in the upcoming BWSC17. Through the trialling process of designing and building our next-gen car, we have formed an unspoken comradery amongst our members. The BWSC will be the cherry-on-top of this unique and amazing experience for the team!

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.
