24 hours iLumen European Solar Challenge

iESC podium

After the successful edition of 2014 we proudly organised the 24 hours iLumen European Solar Challenge, supported by the World Solar Challenge.

The iESC was the first 24 hours endurance race ever for solarcars. For the very first time, solarcars could show their full potential with low power consumption and fantastic aerodynamics and challenge electric cars over the full 24 hours.

This exciting event took place from September 23 till 25, 2016 at the former Formula 1 race track of Circuit Zolder (Belgium).

Twelve solar cars challenged each other and two Tesla S cars. After a fantastic race, Solar Team Twente became European Champions. Punch Powertrain Solar Team finished second, while the third place was for the German PowerCore SunCruiser.

We would like to thank all teams for making the iESC such an unforgettable event. We hope to see you all back at Circuit Zolder, for the iLumen European Solar Challenge 2018 !
