Americas and Europe 2014

The Shell Eco-marathon 2014 Rules (Chapter 1) are now available. This document is applicaple to the competition in Americas and Europe.

The 2014 Chapter 1 Rules have been updated to increase the technical challenge and the opportunity to discover and explore new technologies, as well as to increase the safety standards of the competition. Here are some of the key changes to the 2014 rules:

1. All Prototype vehicles must have a “floor”, to protect the driver from touching the ground while driving.

2. All Battery-electric vehicles must have a self-built Motor Controller

3. The Off-Track awards are also included in Chapter 1, giving you more time to prepare your applications

4. We have added short "Shell Eco-marathon Tech Tips" videos to the Rules. In those videos, our technical experts provide hints and helpful comments to some of the frequently asked and most challenging topics.


But please ensure that you read and understand  the entire document thoroughly. And good luck to all teams!

Logistics and technical details that are speficic to each region will be covered on the regional "Chapter 2" of rules to be published soon.
