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.

Drivers' World Championship Asia

The Shell Eco-marathon Drivers’ World Championship brings together the world’s best UrbanConcept teams competing in an exciting race to see who the world’s fastest energy-efficient driver is.

At the end of Shell Eco-marathon Asia, the top four UrbanConcept teams in each of the three categories - Battery Electric, Hydrogen and Internal Combustion Engine - will take part in the Drivers’ World Championship (DWC) Asia. The top three teams will then fly to London in May to take part in the DWC Grand Final. There, they will race for the championship trophy against their counterparts in Europe and the United States.

In 2016, Bumi Siliwangi Team 4 from Indonesia did Asia proud by clinching the top title.

2017 results and awards

2017 Off-Track Award Winners

Communications

Winner:
Team PNEC-NUST-Urban
National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Pakistan

Team PNEC-NUST showed that good communications is a state of mind, and not a time of life. Its creative "Go Green" campaign focused on different target audiences and was successfully implemented across the public campaigns, print media, online media and social media. The team’s online campaigns were full of creativity – “Creative Pakistan" called for a poetry competition and a poster redesigning competition, while a "Don't be Fuelish" campaign provided fuel saving tips by implementing the use of new technologies. The team also held special events to engage key stakeholders – an inauguration event attended by the President of Pakistan and a special launch ceremony covered by major local news channels.

Commendation:
Team Eco Titans
VIT University, India

The team is commended for its efforts to go beyond its own sphere of influence in India. It conducted educational seminars at the Kathmandu University of Nepal and had inspired students to consider forming a team for Nepal for the first time.

Technical Innovation

Winner:
Girton Grammar Shell Eco Marathon Team
Girton Grammar School, Australia

This year’s 2017 Shell Eco-marathon Asia Technical Innovation award goes to Girton Grammar School. This Australian high school team has designed, assembled, implemented and tested a device to convert wasted exhaust heat into electricity that augments vehicle electrical operations. This innovation is novel and important because over ½ of the chemical energy that is within fuel is not utilised and is considered waste heat that just goes out the tailpipe.

Commendation:
NTU Singapore 3D-Printed Car
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

The team is commended for their Torque Vectoring Steering System.

Vehicle Design (Urban Concept)

Winner:
Team EnduroKiwis
University of Canterbury, New Zealand

The EnduroKiwis team won for producing a car that brought fresh thinking about recyclability to the competition. By entering a car largely made of a common thermoplastic, the team showed a refreshing and holistic approach to design — it chose a material that was easy to work with, light, low-cost, and easy to re-use. The team’s approach to the competition also transcended the challenge of minimising energy use, by focusing attention on how the materials we consume also have an impact on the environment. The car’s design paid due care to driver safety and comfort, and the car itself was commendably well-finished and built to the highest standard seen by the judges. Ultimately, the EnduroKiwis car was eye-catching enough to make passers-by stop and look, but the way it was built should also prompt observers to stop and think.

Vehicle Design (Prototype)

Winner:
Team Zeal Eco-Power Proto
Tongji University, China

Team Zeal Eco-Power Proto presented an extremely well-designed and well-executed monocoque ICE design. Team Zeal Eco-Power Proto drew inspiration from nature, in this case dolphins, for the streamlined shape of their car. They were very successful in achieving the difficult balance between design/aesthetics versus power train and transmission, weight and vehicle performance. They designed a fully enclosed vehicle – as a consequence of which Team Zeal Eco-Power Proto achieved a coefficient of drag (Cd) of 0.0622. Considerable thought was given to driver safety, vision and ergonomics. With regards to eco-friendliness and recycling, Team Zeal Eco-Power Proto was also unique in developing an extended service period concept for the vehicle by giving the retired car shell to a high school and providing free technical advice to help develop the next generation of designers. They added a very organic and human touch with leaves and water motif being a part of the car livery.

Commendation:
Grüne Welt
Multimedia University Melaka Campus, Malaysia

The team is commended for creating a car designed to overcome a lack of resources. Their Eco-V5 vehicle was conceived in a way that was admirably modularised. This led to an often overlooked kind of efficiency: it was easy for parallel teams to engineer, and was uniquely transportable because the modules could be broken down into pieces that could be more or less hand carried. The car’s modularity also ensures a certain level of future-proofing — the drivetrain section, for example, could be easily removed and replaced by an improved design in future. Ultimately, design is problem-solving given form. The judges felt that Grüne Welt’s team members understood this principle well, and hope that their example will inspire other universities to participate in the Shell Eco-Marathon, whatever the resources at their disposal.

Safety

Winner:
ASU Racing Team (Prototype)
Ain Shams University, Egypt

We were impressed with the safety mindset of every member of the team that covers all aspects of safety from design, through fabrication of the vehicle, to the race itself. Taking the example of a roll over, the team identified the risk, designed the car to minimise the risk and did an actual roll over test to check the suitability of the design. Driver protection and comfort was key to the team at the expense of the performance of the car. Drivers’ feedback was well-integrated into the design of the cockpit creating a very ergonomic workplace for the driver to perform optimally and safely on the track.

Commendation:
Nanyang E-Drive
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

The team was very well prepared for emergencies and demonstrated that they could get their driver out and get medical help immediately. They provided an innovative solution to hydrate the driver while on track.

Garuda Uny Eco Team
Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta, Indonesia

The team considered safety in every aspect of the vehicle design and invested in high quality fire retardant PPE for the driver. They responded very cohesively to any safety challenges posed to them by the judges.

Perseverance and Spirit of the Event

Winner:
Team Panthera
Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women, India

This team inspired not only the judges, but the young girls back home in their town. They continuously showed perseverance, both on the road to Shell Eco-marathon Asia 2017, but more importantly motivating the other teams at the competition with their resilience. As the first all-girl team from India, they went against the norm. It's not every day young girls grow up thinking they will one day be a mechanical engineer, but this group of girls went against all odds and went ahead to build their vehicle whilst still convincing their university to support their participation. Receiving official support at the last minute, the team overcome many hurdles to finally step foot on the competition ground after trying for the second year.
