Team & Car

“We are some aspiring electrical engineering students from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca. Our journey started in the world of solar race cars in 2019. At the very beginning of our solar racing career, we are motivated and full of enthusiasm, eager to compete and learn. Our car will compete in challenger class, its name is SolisEV-1”, Team Leader Ervin Balint explains.

The challenge

“Since the iLumen European Solar Challenge will be our first race we attend, we haven’t raced yet on the Zolder race track. We consider Zolder, with its straights and chicanes, a pretty challenging race track, and probably enjoyable for the drivers.”

“As a rookie team in the solar racing, our goals have to be realistic. Obviously, we want to be competitive, and to get the most out of our car, in order to finish the race in a good position. We see this race as a great opportunity to grow as a team, and to obtain valuable experiences that will help us to improve our car in the future.”

“To finish the 24-hour race, we put extra efforts to make our car more reliable, and all the team members have to be well prepared both mentally and physically to remain concentrated. We are looking forward to face all the challenges of such a long race, and to get the most out of our possibilities.”

“As a former F1 race track, Zolder is part of the motorsport history. I think, with solar energy powered cars we can bring the future of the motorsport to a such an amazing race track, and this event will be enjoyable for visitors and provides valuable experiences for participants as well”, Balint concludes.
