The third and final instalment of the 2021 Off-Track Awards took place on Friday, April 16 with the announcement of the Asia Pacific and Middle East winners LIVE on YouTube.

Norman Koch, Global General Manager Shell Eco-marathon, welcomed back special guest Oliver Rowland, Nissan e.dams Formula E driver and a host of familiar and some new faces to reveal this regions winning and runner-up teams.

The Asia Pacific and Middle East Off-Tracks received a record number of submissions at 198 entries from 64 teams in 11 countries, that’s nearly twice the number as in previous years; with the Safety Award, Technical Innovation Award and Communications Award proving to be the top three most popular categories amongst participating teams.

The unprecedented number of entries didn’t seem to impact on the quality, and our judges had a tough time deliberating over all team submissions. After building shortlists of the best teams, our panel used scorecards and decided by mutual agreement on the winners and runners-up who receive $1,500 and $750 in prize money respectively, plus Virtual League points.

Scroll down for the full list of 2021 Asia Pacific and Middle East Off-Track Award winning and runner-up teams.

Winner: DTU E-SUPERMILEAGE, Delhi Technological University – India

The winning team improved the efficiency of their vehicle by using a die cast aluminum coil in place of the conventional copper winding coil in their brushless direct current electric motor. The implemented system resulted in reduced weight, better utilisation of the available installation space, and lower effective resistance.

Runner-up: DTU SUPERMILEAGE, Delhi Technological University – India

The runner-up team reduced friction losses in an internal combustion engine by reducing the contact area between the piston skirt and the cylinder walls. This reduction in contact area was achieved by machining sections from the piston skirt.

Safety Award:
Content

Winner: Team AVERERA, Indian Institute of Technology BHU – India

The winning team demonstrated an outstanding safety culture and mindset through their safety management on people, vehicle design and manufacturing and process. Both passive and active technology solutions have been developed and implemented to improve the team’s overall safety performance, such as crumple zone, bulkhead design, motor overheating protection and TPMS. The team also piloted lane-detection algorithm and some other digital solutions to champion better safety performance, which shows their forward thinking on how to embrace the future autonomous and connectivity world.

Runner-up: Arjuna, Universitas Indonesia – Indonesia

Arjuna also showed a very deep safety understanding in their submission. An excellent safety performance was driven by a well-defined risk assessment control framework, which adopts detailed methods for risk identification, assessment and evaluation. While certain risks during the testing of the car and ergonomics were revealed, several unique features have been equipped on safe design and safe manufacturing through their workshop activities. An impressive and high-quality video and report developed by the team was highlighted by all the judges.
