Flinders Automotive Solar Team

Hello and welcome to our site,

FAST is a multidisciplinary collaboration of students from Flinders University in South Australia. Over the past few years FAST has worked to develop a solar car which was entered the Cruiser Class category of the 2017 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. This year FAST are continuing design improvements and manufacture new components required to be competitive in the 2019 challenge.

Our team, and Flinders University as a whole follows a long tradition of renewable energy research. The solar car is such an example, giving further opportunity for our university to investigate solar cell technology through providing team-project-based experience for the students of Flinders. Additionally, FAST supports student thesis projects, providing an avenue for students to test their theories, ideas and innovations. Participation in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge will allow healthy interaction with other university teams and other academic entities from all around the world, including Australia.

If you would like to follow our journey to support us, follow us on social media! Have a look around our website to find out more about us, although it’s currently under review, the information is still good. If you are a Flinders student and would like to join us, get in touch! We are currently accepting roles in all disciplines and offer volunteer opportunities across a variety of projects.

Thanks for reading.

Kind Regards,
Flinders Automotive Solar Team
