Countdown to Bridgestone World Solar Challenge

The race is on!

Best of luck to JU Solar Team!

Our vision

One team, through creative engineering building a competitive solar car, crossing Australia and challenging the world in Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. We want to contribute to sustainability, innovation and a source of inspiration for younger generation.


The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is the world’s biggest solar-powered car race. It started in 1987 and takes place every other year. In the competition, teams from all over the world are going to drive 3022 kilometers from the north to the south of Australia – from Darwin to Adelaide.

This year, we have chosen to build on the same concept as Solveig. Our design for 2019 is calculated to have 20% less weight, 20% lower drag coefficient and improved efficiency for the electrical system.
