Top Dutch Solar Racing wants to win in Morocco with Green Spirit

13 July 2021

Last Wednesday, the Top Dutch Solar Racing presented its new solar car Green Spirit in the Forum Groningen. With Green Spirit, Top Dutch Solar Racing will participate in The Solar Challenge Morocco 2021 at the end of October. No less than eight FSE students are part of the team.

The design of the new car reflects the image of Top Dutch as a team from the North: various buildings and monuments from the provinces of Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe can be found on the car as a skyline. The name Green Spirit is based on the perseverance and positive attitude of every team member.

With Green Spirit to Morocco

With Green Spirit, Top Dutch will participate in The Solar Challenge Morocco 2021 at the end of October. In this race, solar teams will drive around 2400 km through the Sahara desert and the Atlas Mountains. The solar teams from Twente, Delft and Leuven will also participate in the race in Morocco.

The team consists of 23 students from the University of Groningen, Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen, Noorderpoort, ROC Friese Poort and Alfa College. This is what makes Top Dutch Solar Racing unique: it is not a university team, but a team with secondary vocational education, university of applied sciences and university students.
