2nd place at the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition
After the first competition in January 2017, a new Delft Hyperloop team was founded to compete in the third installment of the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition. In the summer of 2018, Delft Hyperloop would face a new criterion compared to its predecessors: top speed. This requirement brought along many new challenges. With their technologically outstanding design, Delft Hyperloop managed to finish in second place. Due to an overheating of the temperature sensor on the motor controller, the pod came to a standstill after reaching a speed of 142 km/h.
