The University of Michigan Solar Car Team recently won the 2010 American Solar Challenge—its third consecutive national title and sixth overall. DASolar.com is a proud sponsor of the University of Michigan Solar Car Team.

The American Solar Challenge is a competition to design, build, and drive solar-powered cars in a cross-country time/distance rally event.

During the race, Michigan’s solar car, Infinium, traveled 1,100 miles over six days, averaging 40 mph. According to the team’s blog, the race crew only spent 15 minutes on the side of the road making a minor electrical repair.

Congratulations to the race team for another victory! These young engineers are our future solar and transportation pioneers!
