After racing in the Shell Eco Marathon in Rotterdam, Team Apollo, a high mileage vehicle with low drag, running on bio-ethanol, could have a restful summer. Instead, Team Apollo joins Team Anemo, a wind power vehicle built with sustainable materials and durable design to compete in Race Aeolus Den Helder Netherlands, the world’s fourth largest sustainability race, August 22-25, http://www.windenergyevents.com/
The combined team Rootbox, www.rtbx.nl, sponsored by SolidWorks reseller, Design Solutions, http://www.designsolutions.nl/ fuse their strengths to build one durable vehicle, with innovation, reduced aerodynamics, and passion.
For the Shell Eco Marathon, Team Apollo used SolidWorks and SolidWorks Flow Simulation and caught the eye of actress Victoria Koblenko, who tested out the vehicle – minus her shoes.
We thank Team Apollo, Stephan, Arno, Dennis, Sander, Lisa, Jan, Lianne, Dewi, Merel, Bas, David, Ron, Martin, Thys, Toon & Vincent, for sharing your story and we look forward to seeing you at the SolidWorks 2014 Launch event this November. Marie
