Shock Hazard

 

The fifth car produced by the Solar Motion Team is Shock Hazard. This car was designed to be a high-performance car with a racing life-span of three years.

The vehicle is of a three-wheel design, with the rear wheel powered by a wheel-hub motor from New Generation Motors. The chassis of the car uses a crom-moly steel tube space frame to support the solar array and under-fairing. The array is comprised of aluminum, Nomex honeycomb and carbon fiber. The lower fairing is made of the same materials to create a rigid, but aerodynamically efficient shell around the car. The car is slated to race in the FormulaSun Grand Prix '04 & '05 in Topeka, KS, as well as the American Solar Challenge 2005 from Chicago, Il to Claremont, CA along Route 66.
