Rutger Smeets

Mechanical Engineer


After finishing my bachelor's degree as an engineering student, there was an urge for extreme challenge and learning new skills. What challenge is better than prolonging the world title during the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge? With my past as a mechanical engineering student at KU Leuven, I will take care of the mechanical equipment of the car together with Giel and Bart. With innovative ideas, we want to build a real racing car that will put the competition to the test. As a member of team 9, expectations are high, but we are incredibly strong in our shoes. I am sure that the next 15 months will fly by and new friendships will be made.

The ultimate goal? Winning, of course!
