Characteristics of team

We have 13 years of experience for building solar cars. The Istanbul Technical University Solar Car Team is run by approximately 20 students from various majors and ages, and is renewed every 2 years. We handle almost all design and analysis ourselves. Moreover, we pride ourselves on accomplishing great things with only a small budget. Teamwork and engineering solutions define our differences.

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

The BWSC journey in Australia is a lifetime experience for the team. Dealing with all the arrangements, driving the 3,000 km route, survival among all kind of insects, racing collegues from great universities around the globe with your own design, are all priceless. We are the only team that is participating in the BWSC from Turkey this year. We aim to be in the top 5 and surprise big guns by building the most efficient and handsome solar car. We also have a couple of surprises coming up!

As a Bridgestone team, we have worked collaboratively with ITU team on the process of preparation. We hosted them in our factory and our factory team gave advice on tires and road holding.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to all participants. This is a great opportunity for all of you to prepare yourself to be challenged, excited and inspired!
