On September 22 and 23 the 24 hours iLumen European Solar Challenge will take place at Circuit Zolder. Today the organizing committee, represented by chairman Frans-Joseph Joosten, concluded a cooperation agreement with Circuit Zolder.
On behalf of Circuit Zolder, Sven Pribylla (General Director) and Lucia Gallucci (Race Organisation Manager) signed the contract, which was concluded for the 2018, 2020 and 2022 editions with an extension option for 2024, 2026 and 2028.
Frans-Joseph Joosten, chairman and driving force behind the 24 hours iLumen European Solar Challenge powered by Circuit Zolder, was of course very happy with the cooperation agreement with Circuit Zolder. “What started as an anonymous small-scale event with 4 participating teams in 2010, has become one of the largest and most respected races for solar cars in the world, and we are particularly proud that on September 22, about twenty solar cars from all over the world will appear on the starting grid for the only 24 hours solar car race in the world.”
