Driving the future of mobility
Since 1985, Shell Eco-marathon has challenged student teams around the world to design, build and drive the most energy-efficient cars. After a successful first edition in the country’s motorsports city, São Paulo, in 2016, it is hosted again by Shell Brazil, this time in Rio de Janeiro from November 6-9, 2017.
Shell Eco-marathon Brazil will welcome young engineers from across the country to hit the purpose-built urban track at the Riocentro convention center and push the boundaries of energy efficiency.
