In October 2009 Cambridge University Eco Racing (CUER) took on teams from across the world in the Global Green Challenge www.globalgreenchallenge.com.au, a 3,000km journey across Australia for solar-powered cars. Racing across a barren continent using nothing but the power of the sun, makes for an inspirational spectacle, but what can the engineering industry learn from development of these highly-specialised vehicles?

The CUER team was the UK’s only team in the 2009 Global Green Challenge and has built two solar cars in the group’s two-year history.

This talk will explore the relevance of solar car technologies, illustrated using the experiences of the Cambridge team.

Guests will also be invited to view CUER ’s 2009 car, Endeavour, recently returned from the Australian outback.

The speaker, Anthony Law, was CUER Team Manager and graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in Aerospace Engineering in June 2009. Anthony is now an engineer at automotive consultancy, Ricardo.

This free lecture is open to members and non members. There is plenty of space in the lecture room and no need to register for this event.
