Students from Eindhoven University on Friday successfully defended their title for the second time in the 3,000 km race across Australia for solar driven family cars.
The victory for Solar Team Eindhoven and their car Stella Vie in the cruiser class race mean Dutch teams took both titles at the event, which takes place every two years.
Although the score for practicality – worth 20 points – is to be determined on Saturday, Stella Vie’s score for energy efficiency is ‘already sky high and unbeatable!’, the team said on their website.
On Thursday, the team from Delft University won the challenger class event with Nuna9.
