To inspire you to think about lubrication engineering principles when improving the fuel efficiency of your Shell Eco-marathon vehicle, we are hosting the Tribology Week. We will be sharing cases from Shell and examples from the Motorsports partnerships with Ferrari and Penske Racing. Find out more below and don't forget to apply to the Tribology Award in your regional Shell Eco-marathon.
What is Tribology?
Welcome to the world of Tribology!
Tribology is the science behind lubrication, friction and wear. It is a very important discipline that allows us to improve fuel efficiency results in a vehicle today through the use of lubricants.
When looking into using lubrication engineering principles in your vehicle to improve your fuel efficiency result on track, make sure you think about where Tribology can make a difference.
