With the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge fast approaching, we are very excited to announce our partnership with KISS Communications, who are supporting CUER's first ever dedicated Media Team for the event and helping CUER to build and sustain a successful PR campaign. 

Top British entry sets off for World Solar Challenge 2017

With the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (BWSC) drawing closer, Cambridge University Eco Racing (CUER) has embarked on the first stage leading up to one of the greatest automotive challenges in the world. Their entry Mirage – which will shortly arrive in Australia – will have to endure a gruelling 3,000 km marathon from Darwin to Adelaide on 8th – 15th October 2017, facing some of the harshest conditions imaginable. 

Anniversary Alumni Interview - Martin McBrien

To celebrate our 10th Anniversary, this year, we are reconnecting with a key figure from each year of the team's history, each month until WSC 2017. To kick off this series, we interviewed team founder, Martin McBrien, about his time with the team and how it has all changed over the years.  

Qoros and Mazak Join the Adventure

With plans for a new vehicle to compete at the top end of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2017 well under way, we are incredibly pleased to announce our latest two high-level sponsors: Qoros and Yamazaki Mazak. 

European Solar Challenge 2016

On September 21st two car loads of CUER team members, trailering Evolution, left Cambridge to travel to an old F1 track in Belgium. Circuit Zolder was the setting for the iLumen European Solar Challenge (iESC), the first 24hour solar race. The race layout allowed two sessions charging the battery from the mains, allowing additional run-time overnight. 

Cantab Capital Partners #SponsorMonday

This week, we are very pleased to announce our latest sponsor to claim their space on the 2017 race vehicle and show their support of our team: Cantab Capital Partners. 

The Cambridge Circuit Company #SponsorMonday

The Electronics Hardware is one of the key elements of the solar car design concept which spans from driver controls (in figuring out the most relevant data to convey to the driver), to the electric drivetrain needed to propel the car from the north to the south coast of Australia, a distance of about 3000km.

Summer Design Team Conclusion

It has been 10 weeks of intense work and a steep learning curve for many of the students, but the 2016 Summer Design Team has been an undeniable success. Thank you to all the students for all their hard work and to our sponsors, supporters and alumni for their involvement so far in making our 2017 racing vehicle the best we have ever produced. 

Rockfort Engineering #SponsorMonday

Systems Integration: One of the things I love about the CUER cars is that they bring a lot of engineering disciplines together: mechanical, electrical, structural, aeronautical. And with so many people working on designing their own part of the car in the Summer Design Team, it’s important to make sure that the final pieces of each project fit together. It’s no good having a brilliant aerodynamic shape if it turns out it’s too narrow for the wheels to turn, or for us to build the chassis only to realise the battery pack doesn’t fit. 

European Solar Challenge

It is with great delight that we are announcing our participation in the upcoming European Solar Challenge in September. The event will be a 24 hour track race at the Zolder Circuit in Belgium. 

Wheels with Dassault Systèmes #SponsorMonday

The wheel design project for the Summer Design Team 2016 is looking at producing more lightweight and aerodynamically efficient wheels for our next generation vehicle. Having used the same wheels for the previous two World Solar Challenges, it's time for an upgrade! 

Redbourn Group #SponsorMonday

The array design project is all about responding to one of the key changes in the regulations of the World Solar Challenge. In 2017, only the exiting driver will be allowed to touch the car to set it up for control stops, and only the incoming driver will be able to set it up for driving again. 

Dassault Systèmes #SponsorMonday

In the Summer Design Team, David is leading the chassis design using software tools from Dassault Systèmes. Dassault Systèmes support our team with software packages Solidworks, Catia and Abaqus. These packages are invaluable to the team for design, analysis and manufacture. 

Airgain #SponsorMonday

This summer, as part of the Summer Design Team, Aleksandr Bogomil, will be undertaking a project on our Telemetry and Strategy systems thanks to the support of Airgain. A leading provider of high-performance embedded antenna technology, integration support, and test services for the wireless communications market, Airgain brings over 10 years of experience in performance optimisation of wireless systems to the project.
