About Us

GT Solar Racing is a group of motivated students who are passionate about advancing vehicle technology through building solar-powered race cars. Our team is comprised of roughly 50 students from over 14 disciplines, ranging from engineering and science to management.

We are incredibly passionate about developing students who will be leaders in their respective fields, and devote considerable time to training and skills development. Students of all experience levels are welcomed and have the opportunity to design and manufacture high-level mechanical, electrical, solar, and financial systems.

General Team Structure

Georgia Tech Solar Racing is structured into five main divisions: Mechanical, Electrical, Race OperationsBusiness, and Outreach. Our Executive Board is made up of the President, Chief Engineer, and Lead for both Mechanical and Electrical. These two divisions are lead by subteam leads.

Race Team

During Spring semester, the team's Executive Board selects members of the overall team to participate in our annual race as the Race Team. The Race Team typically consists of roughly 13-17 students representing some of the team's most capable and dedicated members. Each member is responsible for a unique and critical aspect of the car in both preparing it for the race and to keep the car driving as fast as possible for as long as possible.
