How does it work?

A regional Drivers’ World Championship race takes place at Shell Eco-marathon Asia, Shell Eco-marathon Americas, and Shell Eco-marathon Europe.

  • UrbanConcept teams compete to achieve the best energy-efficient result in the Shell Eco-marathon mileage challenge.
  • The top three most energy-efficient UrbanConcept teams from each energy category (Internal Combustion Engine, Battery-Electric, Hydrogen) are chosen to compete in the DWC regional event, making nine teams total. 
  • The three winners from the DWC regional events at Shell Eco-marathon Asia, Shell Eco-marathon Americas, and Shell Eco-marathon Europe will compete in the Drivers’ World Championship Grand Final. The first vehicle to cross the finish line wins.
  • All eligible teams must pass an additional Technical Inspection.
  • All visiting teams (i.e. winners from the DWC regional events) must also complete at least two valid runs at Shell Eco-marathon Europe to set their energy benchmark.
  • Live on-board energy measurement.
  • This is a handicapped race: Energy amounts available depend on team performance in the Shell Eco-marathon mileage challenge.
