U-M Solar Car Team

. October 31, 2019.

It was another successful year for the University of Michigan Solar Car Team at the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, held in the Australian outback this past October. Their entrant, Electrum, completed the 1,800 mile, 5-day race with an impressive third-place finish, becoming the only American team whose car successfully finished the race. Electrum overcame high winds and fierce competition to maintain an average speed of nearly 80 km per hour over the course of the race. This was the 11th time the U-M team had fielded a car for the World Solar Challenge, with their previous entrant, 2017’s Novum, taking second place.
