Dedication of Volkswagen Automotive Innovation Laboratory (VAIL) at Stanford

We are a proud sponsor of Apogee, Stanford University’s entry in the 2010 American Solar Challenge, a competition to design, build and drive solar-powered cars in a cross-country time and distance rally event. Teams from 17 universities worldwide competed in the 1,100-mile drive from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, to Naperville, Illinois, with Stanford taking 4th overall. Our support included providing the students with access to engineering expertise and mentorship from the researchers at the Electronics Research Lab, a Volkswagen Touareg as a support vehicle for the team, and financial support of $50,000 over the course of two years. The race is not over yet; the Stanford team hopes to participate in the World Solar Challenge, an 1,877-mile race across the Australian continent.
