The following teams took part in the 2016 competition.
There was only room on the starting line for 12 teams, and of the 18 teams who initially indicated their interest, only 11 managed to earn a spot. To do so, each team had to pass four engineering stage gates, in whatever order they chose. The Stage Gates were (R)eport, (S)pecification, (V)ideo, and (P)hotos. The status of each team was updated here as the stage gates were completed, which meant that the competition effectively started nearly a year before the races.
The links in the table will take you to the teams’ websites, where you will find more information posted by the teams themselves about their designs and the successes they had at the races.
