8 Punch Powertrain Solar Team (Punch One)
The Belgian team from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven came 6th in the World Solar Challenge Challenger class in 2013, in their earlier vehicle Indupol One, and 3rd in the Abu Dhabi Solar Challenge (but 1st among the four-wheeled cars). Their sixth car, Punch One (above), seems to have performed well in wind-tunnel testing (below), and we wish the 16 students on the team all the very best for the World Solar Challenge this year. Good luck, team 8!
