At Shell Eco-marathon, teams can win on and off the track!

On-track, the competition is not about speed. It’s about energy efficiency. In both Prototype and UrbanConcept categories, winners are the teams that manage to go further on the least amount of energy.

Teams can also win prizes for their work off-track, in different categories such as Communications, Design, Technical Innovation and Safety.

Below you can view and download the latest list of results and awards.

2016 Results and Awards

2016 Off-Track Award Winners

Communications Award
EcoVeiculo, Battery Electric Prototype, Universidade Federal de Itajuba (Brazil).
Besides the team’s proficient broadcast and social platform, it included its local community and sponsors in spreading the word about its participation in the competition.

Safety Award
Team Paoli Purple, Gasoline Prototype, Paoli (Indiana) High School. (USA)
The team incorporated safety features not only in the vehicle design and the team's daily practices in the paddock, but also during the vehicle building process. Its proactive accident prevention mind-set also was evident in its display files in the paddock that demonstrated that safety is the team’s top priority.

Vehicle Design Award
Team Beyond, Battery Electric Prototype, Universite de Sherbrook (Canada).
Saint Thomas (Minnesota) Academy Experimental Vehicle Team Alpha, Battery Electric UrbanConcept. (USA)

Technical Innovation
Tatonkatoo, Ethanol Prototype, University of Colorado Boulder. (USA)
Team members took a different slant on the “Eco” portion of Shell Eco-marathon by seeking to impact the total energy lifecycle cost of its vehicle through the innovative use of natural fiber composite materials mixed with wine tannins and gelatin.

Perseverance & Team Spirit Award
Team E-Team, Battery Electric Prototype, Universidad del Azuay (Ecuador).
Ecuador experienced two major earthquakes and sustained 650 deaths and more than 12,000 injuries. While faced with this emotional weight, the team focused on its mission, exhibiting great optimism with a goal of bringing a silver lining back home.

Team Troy (Michigan) High School and Team James B. Dudley (North Carolina) High School, which over the past year cultivated a friendship built on respect and the desire to collaborate. Dudley High donated parts, tools, shared advice and guidance to the Troy team, which has been practically self-driven, raising funds and working long hours on its vehicle.
