We're moving to Detroit!
“When Shell first announced that the Eco-marathon Americas was going to Detroit, I was apprehensive and not sure what to expect. So I was really concerned about what we would see in downtown Detroit. But upon arrival at the airport, I was impressed that it was clean and somewhat artsy. It was impressive how much revitalization is taking place in downtown Detroit! I am confident that Shell will provide a safe venue for their event. The new course will definitely be a new challenge for all the teams! So I hope that all the teams design and build good, strong, durable cars to power up the hills and fly down the other side! ZOOM! ZOOM!”

"I was skeptical about Shell Eco-marathon Americas hosting an event in what has recently been described as a problematic city. But our visit, and the hospitality that was given to the advisory committee, made a believer out of me. I think Bruce Schultz said it all when taking us on the tour: 'Detroit is back! And seeing is believing'. After staying a few days and experiencing the city, these are not just words. From the riverfront to Greektown, one can feel the energy and the electricity that put you in the flow of excitement."
