Shell Eco-marathon Asia
Pakistan will again be participating in Shell Eco-marathon Asia, with a contingent of 8 futuristic cars from 6 universities competing to be the most energy-efficient.
In 2019, Shell Eco-marathon Asia will celebrate its tenth year of challenging bright young student minds to design and build ultra-energy-efficient cars, and race them in competition out on the tracks. It is a unique global programme for science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) students. To be hosted at Sepang International Circuit, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia the Shell Eco-marathon Asia competition comes full-circle back to where it was first held in 2010. From April 29 to May 2 over 100 teams from all over Asia and the Middle East will test their self-built energy-efficient cars in the two key competition types:
- The Mileage Challenge – competing to see who can get around laps of the track using the least amount of energy.
- Shell Eco-marathon Drivers’ World Championship Qualifier – matching the proven energy-efficiency of their car, with the strategy, skill and speed of the driver to see who crosses the finish line first, without running out of their tiny allocation of energy.
Participating teams will come from Australia, Brunei Darussalam, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Nepal, Oman, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Vietnam and of course, Malaysia.
