Why We #ThinkSolar
Stefan Wilson burns with belief, a trait essential to win in the ultra-competitive world of global motorsports.
But Wilson is different. He fuses trust in his talent as an elite driver – the now – with a fervent sense of responsibility for our planet – the future.
He hails from Great Britain, an island nation known for clouds and rain, yet Wilson looks to the sun to illuminate the road forward for the next generation of auto racing and to ensure sustainability for future generations on Earth. He knows motorsports is the perfect platform to show the power of solar energy for racing – and for the world.
That belief is a reflection of Wilson’s unique personality. He’s idealistic. Approachable. Unselfish. Thoughtful. Responsible.
Those traits are uncommon in the winner-takes-all arena of global motor racing, where second place is often remembered as only first loser. Wilson’s vast experience as a rising star and race winner in a variety of junior open-wheel series in Europe and North America, where results speak louder than intent, has helped him understand his goal to expand solar power in the pits and the penthouses of the world doesn’t require an environmental revolution.
Instead, change will come with something simple, with just one step toward sustainability – by everyone.
Wilson wants to take that step through the unparalleled platform of the 100th Indianapolis 500 in May 2016, an event that will captivate millions around the world. He wants to harness the sun for something simple yet vital, such as a small solar panel on his 230-mph race car to power his pit-to-cockpit radio. Or solar panels on the pit box powering the team’s computers.
The Indianapolis 500 has been an incubator for automotive technology since its origins in the early 20th century. Now Wilson wants to continue and elevate that innovation with solar power, proving its viability for vehicles and for everyday applications.
Wilson can use his strong connections in the solar industry and passion for solar power to meet the needs of any sponsor partner that shares his belief in the sun’s powerful role in sustainability. That common zeal would be reflected in a complete program including hospitality, product sampling and awareness, show cars, driver autographs and meet-and-greets, social media marketing, branding and so much more.
Stefan Wilson believes he has a bright future in the cockpit. And he’s ready to work with your company to light the way to victory lane, help ensure sustainable energy for future generations and reach your goals with solar power.
“LetsThinkSolar.com will be a place where IndyCar fans can learn more about solar energy and our partners.” said Wilson. “You can even join the #ThinkSolar team and be a part of the movement to replace kerosene in Africa, and with SolarAid’s help, the impact map will provide an immediate way to see the effect of each solar light.”
