How many times has your team participated in the event?

Our team has participated in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge once in 2019. Because of the pandemic we unfortunately weren't able to compete in 2021 but competed in the Moroccan Solar Challange 2021.

What is the design philosophy behind your solar car?

Solar cars from Top Dutch Solar Racing are designed with the whole team in mind. From the trust of the driver in the car to the ability of the crew to quickly perform repairs, we focus on making well-rounded cars. That being said, solar cars from Top Dutch Solar Racing are known to be powerhouses, and this year will not be any different!

What is unique about your solar car?

Top Dutch Solar Racing prides itself on being a platform on which to experiment with new technologies. In our car, you can find many new gadgets, all of which have their own unique story. If you are curious we love to give you the tour, so feel free to strike up a conversation if you come across Green Thunder in Australia!

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

As a team we like to challenge ourselves and do this in a fast-paced environment. Doing this on the highest level possible brings the max out of us. Also, by participating we develop ourselves as a team but also a individuals. Many of us haven't worked in such an environment yet, therefore we will learn a lot in this short period of time. Last but not least is that we strive to promote sustainable mobility and doing so by building solar cars with many innovations.

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

We are looking forward to talking with the other teams about their experience and progress throughout the year. We kind of experience the same things but in different teams. We are also much looking forward to getting to know Australia, learning about the cultures, people and habits. Cheers!
