Formula Sun Grand Prix (FSGP) will feature collegiate solar car teams from the US, Canada, and globally. All solar cars will go through an inspection process called scrutineering Sept 21-23. Those solar cars that pass inspection will then participate in the Formula Sun Grand Prix track event Sept 24-26.
Due to the covid-19 situation, this event was rescheduled from July 2020. Please be patient while the website is being updated.
#FSGP2020 will feature two classes of vehicles, both single-occupant and multi-occupant. Single-occupant scoring is based on the number of official laps completed. Multi-occupant scoring is based on energy efficiency, which takes into account not only lap count, but also how many passengers were in the car for those laps.
Track Location – Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka, KS will be the location for scrutineering and Formula Sun Grand Prix 2020. The facility features a 2.5 mile road course track and is conveniently located 90 minutes from Independence, making for an easy transition to the American Solar Challenge display day and start line. Heartland Park was the location of the very first FSGP held in 2000, and we are excited to bring the solar cars back to Topeka for 2020.
