There are a number of ways to get involved in solar car racing. The events typically take place during summer and are free to the public. There are planned stops throughout the American Solar Challenge where the public can get a close up look at all the vehicles. For details about dates and locations, check out information for the next competition.
If you prefer more direct involvement with the events, we are always looking for adult volunteers of any age to travel with the solar car teams as observers in the American Solar Challenge or help out at stage stops and check points along the way.
If you are part of a new or existing solar car team, be sure to download the latest revision of the regulations and register for the next solar car race. Also keep an eye out for announcements on an upcoming IEF Solar Car Conference or look through reference material from past conferences to aid with your vehicle design. If you are new to the event, check out the info for new teams. Alternatively if you are an alumni of a solar car team and want to stay involved, feel free to contact us about opportunities for becoming a race official.
We are always in need of support and sponsorship from individuals, companies, educational institutions, and towns along the race route. If you are interested in making a tax deductible donation, check out our sponsorship page.
