Our response to COVID-19

Although the COVID-19 restrictions have certainly changed how our normal operations look, our early transition to an entirely online team has resulted in our project being minimally impacted by lockdown restrictions. Our new team will continue to operate completely online until the ANU campus, and our workshop reopens.

Project Lead's Update:

4/4/20

Car Cartoon Graphic

I’m pleased to announce that the 2020/21 MTAA Super Solar Racing Team is poised to compete in their next Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. Our team members have been finalised, after a huge influx of competition in our applications to the team. I’d like to congratulate each of those team members for their success.

Further, in the face of the pandemic, we have been assured the BWSC 2021 will continue to run normally. However we are running our team completely virtually during these testing times in order to keep our new members as safe as possible.

Looking forward to the exciting times ahead.

- Ruby Jones, Project Lead

Our 2021 Mission:

Podium Finish.

The MTAA Super Solar Racing Team is ANU's third entrance to compete in the Bridgestone World Solar Car Challenge. Comprising of 30 Members, we seek to cultivate real world experience as well as both industry and student relationships.

2019 Race: MTAA Super Charge 2.0

The MTAA Super Solar Racing team was back again with the ANU's second solar car The MTAA SuperCharge 2. Desinged for the 2019 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. Building on the experiences and lessons from 2017, the team undertook a complete redesign and built a new car from the ground up. With an all new carbon-fibre monocoque design, the new car is lighter, faster, more aerodynamic and reliable.

A Heroic Journey. 3022km Powered By the Sun

The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (BWSC) is a biennial global competition whose teams from around the world build and race solar-powered vehicles. Starting from Darwin with a finish line set in Adelaide, the race totals a distance of over 3000km through the harsh Australian Outback. The BWSC consistently attracts over 40 teams biennially, from 30 different countries, bringing significant global media attention to the race. Entrants include prestigious universities ranging from Stanford to Cambridge, as well as technological institutions and private enterprises such as MIT and Volkswagen. The race offers a chance for the worlds best to compete against the elements and compete for the win.
