The Nuon Solar Team is Delft University of Technology’s prestige student project known by 75% of the Dutch population that designs, builds and races a solar car at the World Solar Challenge, a 3000km race through the Australian Outback.
I was part of the three person management team and was responsible for Sponsoring, PR and Events. The team consists of 16 students from different backgrounds at TU Delft. Everyone is involved in the ideation, conceptualisation, production and racing phase.
We obtained a Dutch media value of €7.6mil and as one of the drivers, raced the car through Australia the fastest, becoming World Champion solar racing.
