The Punch Powertrain Solar Team, a team of (ex)students of the University of Leuven, will travel to the Middle-East for a new challenge with the Solar Car they developed for the World Solar Challenge in Australia. They will compete at the Abu Dhabi Solar Challenge, a race of 1.200 km. Follow them here!

The Punch Powertrain Solar Team is a team of different engineerstudents of the KU Leuven. The main goal of the project is to build the best and most innovative solar car for the World Solar Challenge in Australia. With this project, they want to raise awareness that fossil fuels are finite and solar power is a viable alternative. They also want to promote Belgian high-tech technology and want to raise interest for technology for young students.

One of our colleagues, Jens, will support the team with his expertise on mechanical systems.
