Evolution's Homecoming

On Thursday 18th February, we held Evolution’s Homecoming event, which welcomed our race car from the World Solar Challenge 2015 back to Cambridge. Held in the beautiful Old Library in Emmanuel College, Cambridge, this event was also a chance for our sponsors, supporters, alumni and current members to gather and celebrate our achievements. EVO was glowing while displayed outside the room, and it was great to see all our guests enjoying the opportunity to pose for pictures with her. 

e-Luminate Festival 2016

During six exceptional evenings, the e-Luminate Cambridge Festival, offered the public a unique spectacle creating ephemeral light art installations in the richness and diversity of the urban landscape, and completely transforming the city. As part of this, we took Evolution to the Technology Museum, Elena Rastorgueva tells us about her experiences. 


The World Solar Challenge is more than just a test of engineering; while a well-built car is important, to do well in this event also requires a resilient team, superb organisation and no small amount of luck.

The race runs for 3000km from Darwin to Adelaide, across some of the most remote, inhospitable and striking terrain in the whole of Australia.  Before teams start their journey, their vehicle must undergo strict dynamic and static testing, known as ‘scrutineering’. What follows is a grueling 4-6 day drive, over which the convoys must contend with soaring temperatures, severe weather and outback camping. Ultimately all teams will be welcomed to the Finish Line in the streets of Adelaide.

CUER has been to 3 World Solar Challenges, and every time our members have found it to be one of the most testing and yet amazing experiences of their lives. We aim to win the race, but cannot compete again without the help of our Supporters. The Biggest Budget doesn'tequal the Best Team, and hence we need training and guidance as much as parts and cash to bring our aim within reach.
