On Sunday the 8th of January, Stella Lux was a special guest at the start of a 7-hour endurance race at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. She appeared as safety car driving the first round in front of all the Lucky Dogs cars.
The reason of our visit was our involvement in the Dutch economic trade mission to Las Vegas and Silicon Valley together with Minister Kamp of Economic Affairs, Prince Constantijn and many Dutch companies. The minister tested Stella Lux and was very impressed by our car. Out of his hands, we received an achievement award with the words: “Thank you for inspiring innovation!”.

After the official moment we were able to meet a large group of elementary school-age students from Monterey County who built mini-Stellas. They could take a look inside the car and race with their own-built models. The kids were very enthusiast and they truly understood the technology our solar car is based on.

Program on Monday

On Monday morning (CA time) the trade mission continues with the Smart e-Mobility Conference hosted by Bay Area Air Quality Management District, where Stella Lux will be shown. Our friend Maarten Steinbuch is one of the keynote speakers. In the afternoon she will stand in front of The Glasshouse during the Holland in the Valley Business Dinner.
