Cambridge University Eco Racing (CUER) is a 60 strong student organisation that designs, builds and races solar powered vehicles. Since our founding in 2007, we have become the UK's number 1 solar racing team. We are a not-for-profit organisation that focuses on the areas of technology and education.
We are CUER
Our team mission is to inspire as well as innovate. This leads us to undertake many outreach programs, both nationally and internationally. Through public events and school visits, we show young students how exciting and varied a career in STEM subjects can be.
In addition we provide students at Cambridge University with a learning platform for applied engineering, strategic planning and leadership in the real world.
Through exploring new areas of ultra-efficient vehicle technology, we aim to challenge the accepted concept for solar vehicles with our unique design.

You can see the full article in the Daily Telegraph, including a video interview with current Programme Director, Aurelia Hibbert, here. At the event we also received exposure through ITV East Anglia, BBC Look East, Eureka Magazine and others.
World Solar Challenge 2015
Through becoming the UK's best solar car team since 2007 at the World Solar Challenge in 2015, we received exposure through several outlets including The Huffington Post, ABC News Australia, BBC News UK, ITV Anglia, Cambridge TV, Solar Power Portal and several others.
The Electronics Hardware is one of the key elements of the solar car design concept which spans from driver controls (in figuring out the most relevant data to convey to the driver), to the electric drivetrain needed to propel the car from the north to the south coast of Australia, a distance of about 3000km.
It has been 10 weeks of intense work and a steep learning curve for many of the students, but the 2016 Summer Design Team has been an undeniable success. Thank you to all the students for all their hard work and to our sponsors, supporters and alumni for their involvement so far in making our 2017 racing vehicle the best we have ever produced.
