The Retired Racehorses

The University of Minnesota's Solar Vehicle Project was founded in 1990 and has since completed 13 cars. The Solar Vehicle Project has competed in over 30 racing events, place top 2 in our class for 15 of those events. Our cars have traveled to five nations across three continents - Australia, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, and of course, the United States of America. Typically, a new car is designed and built every two years. To read about our exploits in more detail, go to our archives.
