ERACUP Black Lions Racing Team
We are six dutch students trying to build the fastest possible racing car, will you help us?
In the rapidly changing world of things like ‘fintechs’ and ‘bigtechs’ Rabobank’s ideology is one of a better world. A world in which we help customers to achieve good financial health and sustainable growth, and to make a significant contribution to the major global issues. We do this by making digitalization and innovation a high priority. We are driven by our mission, a long-term focus and a firm belief in the power of cooperation. And without innovation? There is no progress! Therefore we are proud to make it possible for Black Lions Racing Team to build a fast electric racing car. With that car they can play a master role in the so called ERA Cup; an initiative that highlights the global climate issues. There is a long way to go in motorsports but this initiative is determined to be a force for change.

Hi, I’m Lars van Brussel. I’m 17 years old and in my final year of the secondery school “Lodewijk college”.
When I stumbled across the ERACUP, I instantly knew I had to take the chance.
In this project, I want to learn as much as I can about taking on big projects, working on a racecar and, of course, I want to build the fastest car. My dream is to become a Formula 1 engineer.
Hello, I am Lars Pieters, I am 17 years old and at 5 VWO.
When Lars van Brussel told me about this project, I was immediately interested. I really like technology and being creative, this project is perfect for that.
Hello my name is Leon Pladdet. I’m 16 years old and I’m working on the first year of my ICT study. Outside my study I’m busy with 3D printing, Home Automation and developing my own IOT devices.
When this project came over I saw many opportunities and challenges to learn new things.
I’ve always liked driving electric vehicles. Nothing is crazy enough for me.
Hello, my name is Niek Schlooz and I am 18 years old. I am currently in my final year of HAVO and after this, I want to study ICT at the HZ. I have a big passion for Formula 1 and I’m always up for trying new things.

Hello, my name is Karsten Stolk. I’m 16 years old and in my 6th and final year of secondary school.
I have had the thought of making a little car or kart myself for a long time and saw an amazing opportunity when I heard about the ERA CUP competition.
I’ve always loved big projects like this and was thrilled to hear I could participate without any previous experience in racing.My specialties are 3d printing, electronics design, and the worst enemy of them all, resource management.
When it comes down to it, I love to keep things perfectly balanced, as all things should be. My dream is to become an electrical engineer and develop all kinds of electronics.
Hi, I’m Jarno Voermans. I’m 17 years old and in my final year of the secondary school Lodewijk College.
When Lars came to me with this project, I instantly knew that I wanted to join him.
In this project, I hope to learn some more technical skills for the next step in my career: becoming a maritime officer.
