It is our intent is to permit solar cars built for both the ASC 2012 and ASC 2014 regs to compete in the 2013 race, however please review the FSGP regulations below for full details and requirements. There are some material changes between ASC2012 and ASC2014, thus a non-punitive balancing methodology may be imposed on the ASC2014 cars. For a list a approved solar cells, see the applicable ASC 2012 or ASC 2014 regulation page.
Teams that are returning with a solar car previously raced in the American Solar Challenge 2012 need only submit a copy of their previous vehicle design report with a supplement report indicating changes made to the vehicle. If changes to the solar car between ASC 2012 and FSGP 2013 are significant, inspectors may require a new vehicle design report to be completed to properly evaluate the car design for entry into the event. The report instruction can be found in the appendix of the FSGP regulations.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding the event regulations.
