Solar Racing Team


Team DescriptionOur Mission

The MSU SRT is a student run organization that designs, builds, and races electric vehicles that run purely on solar energy. We create a team environment where technical excellence, accountability, open collaboration, and community engagement are all held in the highest regard. In doing so, we hope to further the causes of sustainable innovation and technical education.


In 2010 we created our first solar powered vehicle. Since then, we have produced 5 unique cars – drastically improving our models each time. The newest car we are working on is named Aurora and will be ready to compete in this year’s Formula Sun Grand Prix.
