My responsibility is the high voltage part of the car and more specifically the motor. This component has fascinated me throughout my studies, which have given me a great deal of theoretical knowledge. However, I wasn’t satisfied with only the theoretical aspect, so I joined the ninth Belgian Solar Team and my task is to design, build, test and race with a state-of-the-art motor.
An additional reason why I had to participate in this immense challenge was the beauty of the project. Building a car that needs nothing but the power of the sun to propel itself is elegant in itself. Furthermore, it shows that things can be done differently, which hopefully spreads an important message.
