Team History

Founded in 1991, Western’s Sunstang Solar Car Project has 28 years worth of Solar Car experience under the hood. Sunstang’s entry into solar car racing was a massive success as our team finished 2nd in North America at the 1996 World Solar Challenge.

Sunstang has continued to be a strong solar car team, facing off internationally in solar car competitions with new and improved vehicles. We pride ourselves on our family style environment and we are the most proud of all the awards we have been awarded for team spirit.

Recently we have transitioned towards a learning centered environment. In our time as a Solar Car team we have travelled 50,000+ kilometers off solar power so we have a lot of knowledge to pass on in the many years to come.
