How many times has your team participated in the event?

This is our 4th time participating in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.

What is the design philosophy behind your solar car?

Our design philosophy was simple; to communicate effectively and be proud of the work we were doing each day. This car required a full redesign, from the largest systems to the smallest details. Effective communication was crucial for us to integrate all of these rapidly changing designs. We were sure to hold each other to a very high standard; quality and love were non-negotiable for us to build and race our fastest car yet.

What is unique about your solar car?

Unlimited 3.0 is distinctly us; the personalities of the team members who designed it can be seen in all of the finer details, every piece lovingly crafted into our collective vision of what a solar car could be. It’s the result of our experience together over the past two years - that’s what makes it unique.

Why does your team value participating in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge?

We relish the opportunity to compete against the best teams in the world, thrive on the challenge of engineering one of the most efficient vehicles on the planet, and making so many friends on our journey. The BWSC brings together so many brilliant people who share our relentless passion for a sustainable future, and we value the electric atmosphere this creates.

What is the one thing your team is looking forward to when you visit Australia?

We are fortunate enough to be based in Australia, but as a team, we get to see parts of Australia that many never get to see. We always look forward to welcoming teams from all over the world to Sydney as they pass through.
