Shell Eco-marathon mini events: a safe way back to the track.

Track-based competitions are the cornerstone of Shell Eco-marathon. There is nothing quite like designing and building your own ultra-energy-efficient car and then putting it to the test on an actual track – competing against other student teams from all over the world!

The health and safety of our participants are always our top priority. Over the past few months, Shell Eco-marathon has been closely monitoring the continuous, dynamic evolvement of the COVID-19 pandemic and the recovery has not been as fast as we would have hoped to enable us to move forward with the live Shell Eco-marathon mini events we were aiming to deliver this season.

This decision not to hold any mini events this season was not made lightly, and many potential risks, outcomes and impacts were carefully assessed and considered. Ultimately, given the current environment wehad no choice but to take this decisions, which we are sure you appreciate.

We would like to reassure all Shell Eco-marathon teams that, whilst live events in the 2021 season have not been achievable, we are dedicated to finding a safe way back to the track for the 2022 Shell Eco-marathon season which starts on September 1, 2021. We are working on what the 2022 season schedule will look like and will provide you with further updates in due course.
