World Solar Challenge: Team 5

5  EAFIT-EPM Solar Car Team (Primavera)

The Columbian team from Universidad EAFIT participated in the 2013 World Solar Challenge but, sadly, they only completed 83% of the course. Still, that was a very good result for a rookie team. This year, they hope to do much better, and their car Primavera (above) is currently being shipped to Australia. As a way of sharing the spirit, their web site includes a solar racing game. The somewhat old video below explains the challenges the team has faced. Good luck, team 5!
