European Solar Challenge: update #2

Below (click to zoom) is my revised best guess at the field of cars for the 24-hour iLumen European Solar Challenge to be held at Circuit Zolder in Belgium on 18–20 September (Eindhoven, it seems, is taking their Stella Vie as well). All car photographs except the Swiss one are mine (taken at WSC). See this page for team details and further iESC information.

In other news, the long-range weather forecast is for mostly sunny weather during the 24-hour race. Coronavirus has ruled out the traditional team presentations.

Meanwhile, teams are preparing for the race. Many teams, like Twente, are seeing their regular personnel transition (lists of team members for 2021 are online for Agoria and Top Dutch). Top Dutch have also been running driver training. Eindhoven recently demonstrated the autonomous “solar parking” feature of Stella Era.
