Agoria Solar Team wins sun-drenched 24-hour race at Circuit Zolder

In the weekend of September 19 and 20, the 24-hour iLumen European Solar Challenge took place at Circuit Zolder. Despite the corona crisis, 11 solar cars were present for the start of the only international solar car race of the year 2020.

The starting shot was given by Flemish Minister of Mobility & Public Works Lydia Peeters. “I am delighted to be able to kick off the iLumen European Solar Challenge. The fact that a Belgian team excels in this discipline gives me great hope for research and development into innovative and sustainable mobility. I wish all participants good luck”, the minister said.

After an exciting race, victory went to the Belgian Agoria Solar Team, with professional racing driver Bert Longin as one of the pilots. Twente Solar Team, the winner of the 2016 and 2018 editions, occupied places 2 and 3.

Thanks to the excellent weather conditions and the technological progress of the cars, the record number of laps during the 24-hour race was broken by no less than a quarter by the Belgian team.

We are already looking forward to the 2022 edition, when Circuit Zolder will hopefully be allowed to welcome a large crowd.
