Introducing the 2021 Shell Eco-marathon programme – a season like no other
The 2020 season was one we won’t easily forget, where we all had to adapt and transition to an entirely virtual programme; and as much as we missed getting out on track, the virtual programme proved to be a success.
So, going forward we are delighted to welcome you to Shell Eco-marathon 2021, a hybrid season combining exciting new virtual formats with physical competition elements, where and when possible. Just as a hybrid vehicle can achieve greater energy efficiency by combining the advantages of its distinct types of energy, this blend of physical and virtual competitions ensures that students have more opportunities to participate in Shell Eco-marathon and be recognised for their talent and hard work.
