Racing With Us

A project of this scale would not be possible without the generous contributions of our fans and sponsors. Your support will not only help us build lighter, sleeker, and faster cars, but also provide a platform for the next generation of engineers to develop their skills. Additionally, our impact goes beyond the World Solar Challenge in Australia; we regularly host workshops that engage local schools and communities in embracing green energy and education. We believe that our work is as inspiring for these communities as it is technologically innovative.
We offer a variety of different donation options, and for contributions above $500 we offer a name and hyperlink under the “Fans” section of our sponsors page (reach out to us at after donating). For those who would like to play a larger role and have your brand be visible on our car and trailer, find out more about the sponsorship opportunities we have!
Racing with us means helping us to build a solar car and so much more. We are grateful that you are considering a donation and we hope that you see the value in our objective!
