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

Western Sydney University has competed in the last two events, our aim in 2017 is to place within the top 5. The World Solar Challenge provides a platform for students to follow their passion on an international platform, resulting in a solar car design, built and tested by undergraduate students. The solar car brings out the best of the students involved in the Project and acts as an education tool for students in the early stages of their studies. The Project’s goal is to motivate as many people as possible to drive real change and create a sustainable future.

Bridgestone is proud to be developing tyres for the supported teams participating in The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. The event traverses some of the harshest terrains in the world. Preparation by the teams of their vehicles and equipment is critical for safe driving and reliability. Our Engineers help the competitors to tune their vehicles to manage the factors such as the speeds, heat and distance they will encounter during the event.
