A History of SolarCars Made in Bochum

Everything started in 1999 when a small group of Bochum University graduates built a SolarCar at South Bank University in England for their graduation semester. The Mad Dog III was born. Since then many years have passed, new students joined the project and above all 7 SolarCars have been constructed. Here's the development of the Bochum SolarCars - from HansGo! till thyssenkrupp blue.cruiser - at a glance:
