Stella Lux TU/e second after first leg of Solar Challenge

Stella Lux has ended the first racing day of the World Solar Challenge in second place, in the Cruiser class. The TU/e’s solar-powered car was allowed to start first, following a great qualification. At the finish line, only the Kogakuin Team from Japan was in front of them.

That followed a stop for technical reasons, reports Maarten Steinbuch professor of Mechanical Engineering at the TU/e on his Facebook page. One of the engine controllers was malfunctioning and had to be repaired.

Although the TU/e car is 28 kilometres behind the Japanese team, they may not actually be in second place. In the Cruiser class, speed is not the only deciding factor. The number of passengers the car can take also contributes to the final score.
