Luminos was Stanford’s Solar Racing Vehicle in 2013. Their car managed to place 4th in the collage Solar Car Challenge that is held in Australia. The Oregon Solar Car Team, is proud to use the molds that Stanford generously donated to our team.


The team was started in 2007 by Thomas Stueve, under the name Oregon High School Solar Car Team. The team has been fueled by dedicated and determined members since its inception.

Since 2007, the team has built two solar-powered cars: Heliocentric and Heliocentric II. These cars have raced on the Texas Motor Speedway for the High School Solar Challenge 4 times in total.
The team is now working on a third car called Lumidos, which will be created out of carbon fiber with forms from Stanford’s solar car, under our new name Oregon Solar Car Team.
