READY, SET … GO!
Now the holiday break is almost over and our members took a good time off to rest in places all over the world, it is time to start working on a new solar vehicle. Team 2017 has been announced and have done its first preparations to make a running start. In the first week of September team 2015 will hand over their knowledge and the teams will work together on taking in the new positions.
Someone you will see more often from now on is the new Team Manager, Wout Gubbels.
TAKING OVER RESPONSIBILITY
WOUT GUBBELS, TEAM MANAGER 2017
From next week on we will officially take over the responsibility of being Solar Team Eindhoven. Although the previous teams set the bar high by building two beautiful cars and by winning the World Solar Challenge two times in a row, I have the feeling it is only going to get better. The diversity in the team, in personality and in area of expertise is immense, but there is one thing everyone shares; an unprecedented enthusiasm!
Our common goal is clear, we are going to build something the world has never seen before. Just like the saying; “every wave starts with a ripple”, I would like us to be that ripple in the car industry. What we do might not be directly applicable to the car industry, but it takes time to achieve change in such big industries. We might be small compared to the big firms in that industry, but we have something they don’t have: total freedom and 22 highly motivated and bright students, ready to bring the future a bit closer to us. And that is what inspired me to join the team, and still inspires me; being on the brink of innovation, and contributing to making it happen. I am already curious what this pool of creativity and passion is going to bring in the near future, and I hope so are you!
