We're moving to Detroit!

When Shell first announced that Shell Eco-marathon Americas was going to Detroit, I was apprehensive. But it's impressive how much revitalization is taking place in downtown Detroit! 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'."
