Dal, Polytech MTL students take their solar-powered vehicles to the racetrack for Formula Sun


Student teams from Dalhousie University and Polytechnique Montréal are in Topeka, Kansas this week to compete in the Electrek Formula Sun Grand Prix. The student teams were tasked with building solar race cars, which will undergo a thorough scrutineering process before taking to the road course track for a combined 24 hours of driving over three days. Drivers must strategize their pit stops, monitor the weather, and manage the car’s energy from the sun as they seek to complete the most laps over the three-day period. The Dalhousie Solar Car Team will run its NOVA solar vehicle, while Polytech MTL’s Esteban team will run its Esteban 10.
