Cambridge University Eco Racing (CUER) is a 60 strong student organisation that designs, build and races solar powered vehicles. Since our founding in 2007, we have been the UK’s number one for solar vehicle development.
Our aim is to win the 2013 World Solar Challenge, the world’s foremost solar endurance race, held in Australia. Our racing cars showcase cutting-edge sustainable engineering and demonstrate the incredible potential of electric vehicle technologies. By designing a car to run on solar power alone, we are driving the step changes in vehicle efficiency and new technologies for a low-carbon future.
Following the recent rule change for the World Solar Challenge in 2013, we have been developing a game-changing new concept. With a dedicated team and the experience gained building a prototype over the past year, we are on track to have a world leading solar vehicle for WSC13.
Our team mission is to inspire as well as innovate. This leads us to undertake many outreach programs, both nationally and internationally. We have recently done outreach in Hong Kong, on the Isle of Wight and at Ardingly College as well as within Cambridgeshire. Photos of the outreach activities can be viewed in the gallery.
