Victron Energy has helped sponsor the mechatronic faculty of the Technological University of Tijuana, Mexico, donating equipment to power and monitor their solar and human-powered car for the Solar Challenge Chihuahua.

The university team achieved fifth place with the car performing ‘perfectly’ in a race time of 4:08 hours over a distance of 58km.

Let’s hope there wasn’t too much traffic on the roads that day, as Victron Energy says ‘all budding engineers have to start somewhere’.
