Punch Powertrain Solar Team
Twenty-one students form the basis of the Punch Powertrain Solar Team. They have fifteen months starting from July 2016 for the design and the construction of a solar car, in order to participate in the 2017 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, the world championship for solar cars.
Armed with a strong dose of enthusiasm, motivation and courage, they all joined the team. Having a common goal in mind, they will work on the seventh Belgian solar car. The expectations are high and the team won't make it easy for their competition and is aiming for a good result.
The team members come from the study paths electro-mechanical, electronic and chemical engineering at the KU Leuven.
