Saturn Electronics Corp. Supplies PCBs to UofM Solar Car Team

Jul 22, 2008

As the University of Michigan Solar Car Team fervently primes for the 2008 North American Solar Challenge, Saturn Electronics Corporation is proud to announce their participation as a co-sponsor for the 2008 University of Michigan Solar Car Team. The race is a 2500 mile trek starting in the American Southwest and ending on the other side of the Canadian border.

About the Challenge

The 2008 North American Solar Challenge (NASC2008) is a competition to design, build, and drive solar-powered cars in a cross-country time/distance rally event. Teams compete in a 2400 mile drive from Dallas, Texas to Calgary, Alberta.

Saturn�s Obligation

In March 2008, Saturn VP (and UofM Grad) Yash Sutariya contacted his alma mater to inquire if Saturn could be of assistance to the solar car team.

Continuum had been involved in a crash on the first day of racing in the 2007 WSC in Australia and would have to be rebuilt from the ground up. The resilient young team buoyantly took the task of redesigning the entire car. Sutariya encouraged them to send over the most advanced boards for quick-turns.

Sutariya told the team, which was founded in 1989 and has won four national championships, to send over as many gerber files as necessary and to make them as nasty as necessary and not to worry about anything but winning.

�I was proud to contribute our services to this motivated fraternity of Wolverines,� said Sutariya. "We had worked with the team in the past, and when I spoke to them about what they needed, I resolved to help them in every capacity Saturn has at its disposal.�

Continuum is the ninth solar car the team has built since its inception.
