How many times has your team participated in the event?

This will be our first participation in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.

What is the design philosophy behind your solar car?

Since this is our first solar car from Alfaisal University, our design philosophy is to design and create a solar car that adheres to the highest standards of safety. Every component was simulated and stress analyzed before manufacturing to avoid different types of failure.

What is unique about your solar car?

What makes our solar car unique is that all major components were designed and manufactured in-house by the students. The team are all undergraduate students with no professional experience in a country that doesn’t have an automotive industry; however, with dedication and hard work, the team was able to design, manufacture, and assemble a solar car.

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

Our team values participating in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge because it’s an assembly that brings top teams together with years of experience in one place. As a result, it is the perfect environment to compete, learn, and share experiences with other teams.

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

Our team looks forward to feeding kangaroos.
