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. We are now proud to announce that Shell Eco-marathon is coming to Brazil for the first time from November 8-10, 2016 in São Paulo – the country’s iconic motorsports city.

Shell Eco-marathon Brazil will welcome university teams to hit the track in the Granja Viana racetrack and push the boundaries of energy efficiency.

It is a great opportunity for inexperienced teams and new-comers to practice and improve in order to be selected to Shell Eco-marathon Americas 2017. It is also great for experienced teams to fine-tune their vehicles and strive to improve their personal bests.
