About Helia

Following a launch event at the Science Museum in London, we are proud to show our latest car, called Helia, to the world.

Helia will be competing in the 2019 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, and we are excited to share our progress with you both before and during the competition.


For the first time, Cambridge University Eco Racing is competing in the Cruiser Class of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (BWSC), which tasks teams with building a fast and efficient, but also practical, solar electric vehicle with multiple occupancy. We aim for Helia to be the car that drives us to a podium finish at the 2019 BWSC.

Further information on Helia is available in our full press kit.
