    The Ardingly solar team is in the Process of building a new, improved solar car. This is designed and built using the latest technologies to be the first U.K. solar car to complete the 2019 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge (BWSC) under solar power only. This new car builds upon the success of the previous car, which came in 6th out of 12 in the 2015 BWSC. This car was the first U.K. entrant in the cruiser class, the first school ever to enter the cruiser class and the first school from europe to ever enter the BWSC

Born out of a passion for innovation and creativity, the Ardingly Solar Project became the first ever European school team to compete in the World Solar Challenge in October 2015. This ambitious, forward thinking initiative plunges students into the world of industry, extending engineering, technological and business studies far beyond the confines of a class room. Students are regularly exposed to unique situations which requires them to put their skills and knowledge into practice; it is not every day that a student is able to present in a boardroom at McLaren, or install the chassis of a real-life car!
As a team, we wish to never be satisfied with past successes; for this reason, we are continuing to drive forward and adventure further into the world of sustainable technologies. With our hunger for progress in mind, we are now building a new solar car to test to the limit latest technologies by entering major challenges, before manufacturing a commercially viable solar car (envisaged sale price around £6K) for use in developing countries.
