Cambridge University Eco Racing (CUER) is a 60 strong student organisation that designs, build and races solar powered vehicles. We are a not-for-profit organisation that is mainly funded through corporate sponsorship and private support. Since our founding in 2007, we have been the UK’s number one for solar vehicle development.

Team Leader Visiting MIT and Stanford

I think the time has come for me to kick off the new year with a blog post about my recent visit to our fellow solar car projects in the United States. The whole team has had a solid rest over the holidays and we are now back and ready to get to work. The term has literally just started, most of us are getting on top of our course work and the solar car has already gone away for some special testing - more on that in future blog posts. For now the stage is mine, ha!

Composites Engineering Show

I set to drive to Birmingham once again to publicly showcase our newest solar car EVA for the first time! We were invited to the Composites Engineeing Show by Mouldlife and Group Gazechim to demonstrate the cool things you can build from composites. Arriving just before 5pm there wasn't a huge hassle with vehicles trying to get in the area and thus the whole offloading and setting the car up went very smoothly! 

One Year To Go: EVA Car Launch

On Saturday 25th October 2014, we held our One Year To Go (OYTG) event which marked a year until our participation in the 2015 World Solar Challenge. Held at the Marshall Headquarters in Cambridge, the OYTG event was also a chance for CUER's sponsors, supporters, alumni and current members to gather for the unveiling of our 2014 car, EVA.

Gadget Show Live

It’s been a busy few days for CUER but we’re now settled in at the NEC in Birmingham and having a great time. We first arrived on Monday night and moved Resolution into our exhibition space before checking into our accommodation to get some rest before the show opened the next day. Tuesday was press day, we met lots of interesting people and presented our car to the visitors in the Innovation Theatre. Wednesday was then the first day the show was open to the public and it has been very busy but wonderful to see so many interested people of all ages keen to hear about our project! 

CUER in Monaco

In July, Aleksi Tukiainen, Lucy Osborne, Alan Jamieson, Aurelia Hibbert and Adam Gristock traveled to Monaco to exhibit Resolution at the Solar1 Monte-Carlo Cup.
