Following our success in 2015, we looked to return in 2017 with an even stronger car, UNLIMITED 2.0 featured a much smaller footprint with a unique overhanging solar array, allowing for more solar panel area without compromising vehicle aerodynamics or weight.
UNLIMITED 2.0 at Coober Pedy in 2017
In 2017, we took UNLIMITED 2.0 on the brutal trek across the Australian outback. We faced uncharacteristic and severe weather conditions during the challenge but as we had a close-knit team and a reliable well-honed vehicle we were able to place 6th in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.

Following our success in the 2017 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, we set our sights on the 2018 American Solar Challenge, becoming the first team to represent Australia in the US.
UNLIMITED 2.0 began by completing the qualifying event for the American Solar Challenge, the Formula Sun Grand Prix, in 3rd place with 333 laps and set the fastest lap time overall.
Following a strong start to the event UNLIMITED 2.0 continued to perform, placing 1st in 4 out of the 5 stages and ultimately taking home the title with a narrow margin of 15 minutes ahead of the 18 year champions, University of Michigan. This crowned us as the first international team to take victory at the American Solar Challenge.
