The competition rules
The Shell Eco-marathon rules have been carefully created by the Shell Eco-marathon Global Technical Team to enable safe, technically sound and fair competition in all events.
The Shell Eco-marathon 2017 Global Rules, Chapter 1 are applicable to the competition in all three main events: Asia, Americas and Europe. The rules have been updated to increase the technical challenges and the opportunities to discover and further explore new technologies, as well as to increase the safety standards of the competition.
