World Solar Challenge: Team 16

16  Stanford Solar Car Project (Arctan)

The team from Stanford University have competed in the World Solar Challenge several times, and came 4th in the Challenger class in 2013 (after Nuon, Tokai, and Twente). They recently produced an excellent documentary on their participation in that race:

This year, they are racing their new car, Arctan (below and top). The car is named in honour of a deceased team alumnus. Their website also has some interesting comments on their team structure and older vehicles. Good luck, team 16!
