UCL Team SolarFox 2011
Team SolarFox are involved in the design and development of UCL Mechanical Engineering’s latest solar car, “SolarFox 3”. Their objective is to promote the use of renewable energy by building a racing car that is powered only by the sun. Currently, Team SolarFox aim to optimise the design for competing in the 2011 World Solar Challenge (WSC) in Australia. At this event, Team SolarFox will represent UCL as they compete against the best technical universities from around the world, in a 3000km race across Australia.
SolarFox 3 is situated within the Mechanical Engineering department’s workshops, in the UCL campus in the heart of central London. The car has been designed, built and developed by a strong team consisting of Mechanical Engineering students, academic personnel, workshop technicians and professional consultants.
