New-look Solar Team extremely ambitious: “Best Belgian solar car ever”

In October 2018, the Belgian Solar Team won the Carrera Solar Atacama, a solar car race in Chile. In preparation for the World Solar Challenge, the World Cup in Australia in October, the team proposed a new main sponsor.

Agoria succeeds Punch Powertrain, which means that from now on the team will be called Agoria Solar Team.

“Wat de samenwerking tussen Agoria en het Solar Team zo krachtig maakt, is de sterke link tussen beide organisaties. Het gebruiken van technologische innovaties om bij te dragen aan een betere wereld vormt een sterke basis voor het partnerschap. Een basis die het Agoria Solar Team moet leiden naar innovaties die nodig zijn om de beste Belgische zonnewagen ooit te maken”, zegt Marc Lambotte, CEO van Agoria die op de World Solar Challenge in Australië wil meestrijden voor de overwinning.

“It’s nice to see that Agoria is ready to support us with all possible challenges. Their support, drive and enthusiasm gives us the boost we need to achieve great results in Australia, “says Willem-Jan Claes, team leader of the Agoria Solar Team.

24 hours iLumen European Solar Challenge

iLumen is very fond of the Belgian Solar Team. In the past, 3 of the current employees, including business managers Ismaël Ben-Al-Lal and Pieter Vangeel, were part of the team that participated in the World Championship in Australia. They finished in second place at the time, a result that has never been improved by the Belgian team ever since.

Furthermore, every 2 years iLumen organizes the 24 hours iLumen European Solar Challenge, the European championship for solar cars, at Circuit Zolder. During the 2018 edition, a record number of around 20 cars participated.
