This year’s technical inspection will start in a virtual environment, where teams must demonstrate their vehicle’s compliance with a selection of technical rules detailed in a checklist available for download below. Should physical competitions take place, the inspection will then shift to an in-person setting – the final test for a Shell Eco-marathon team to be allowed on the track.
The score received in the competition will be the number of Virtual League Points awarded to each participating team. In addition to the points, there will be one Virtual Technical Inspection winner for both Prototype and Urban Concept vehicle categories for each of the three regions, and prize money will be awarded for the regional first (1st) through third (3rd) places as follows:
Regional Winner (most points overall): $1,500
Regional Runner-up: $1,000
Regional 3rd Place: $500
