Description: Shell Eco-marathon Future Rider Awards 2021 transcript

[GFX countdown with music]

The Future Rider Awards are starting soon (10 second countdown)

[Video footage]

Cuts to a wide shot of Norman watching the countdown on a TV, before cutting to Norman full frame.

Norman in vision:

Now, let’s find something we can all enjoy.

[Video footage]

Cuts back to Norman watching the TV.

[Text displays – on TV screen]

Shell Eco-marathon Quiz 2022

Americas

[Video footage]

Norman is now watching old footage of himself on the TV screen.

Norman in vision:

Oh, I’ve seen that already. The host was very good.

[Video footage]

Norman changes the channel. Old footage from cars racing at a previous Eco-marathon appears.

Norman in vision:

Ahh, happy days.

[Video footage]

Norman changes the channel again.

Norman in vision:

Oh, this looks very interesting.

[Video footage]

Footage of Kitt from Knight Rider appears on the screen with show’s theme music playing on the top. Colin gets out of the car.

Colin in vision:

It’s Kitt from Knight Rider!

Kitt in vision:

My reputation proceeds me.

Colin in vision:

You were the car of the future! At least in your day.

Kitt in vision:

Colin, what are you insinuating?

Colin in vision:

I’m just saying, today’s car of the future might be a little different. Without all this.

[Video footage]

Colin gets back in the car and plays with the buttons and switches.

Kitt in vision:

Colin, please.

[Video footage]

Car alarm goes off with ‘ALERT’ signal flashing on the dashboard screen.

Colin in vision:

Woah!

Kitt in vision:

According to my specifications, I’m fastest, safest, strongest car in the world.

Colin in vision:

Now, love that about you, mate, but new ideas are already in the works with a new Shell Eco-marathon challenge – Future Rider.

[Video footage]

Quickly cuts back to Norman watching this exchange unfold on the TV, before cutting back to Kitt.

Kitt in vision:

What are the terms of this challenge, Colin?

Colin in vision:

It’s simple. Just design the car of the future… again!

Kitt in vision:

Interesting!

[Video footage]

Colin gets out of the car and starts to walk around it.

Colin vision:

And you’re the inspiration for teams of stem students around the globe working on this right now. Will it be foreign hydrogen?! Will it be powered by batteries?! Will it be biofuel?! Will there be a bazillion buttons?!

There are loads of possibilities!

Kitt in vision:

Shall I calculate, them?

Colin in vision:

No, but your early technologies and intelligence can inspire them.

Kitt in vision:

A turbo boost for the imagination!

Colin in vision:

Exactly!

[Video footage]

Cuts back to Norman, who changes the channel once again. ‘Travel through time’ appears on the TV screen.

Norman in vision:

Well, how could I possibly resist?

[Video footage]

Cuts back to TV screen. The current date appears on the screen before skipping far into the future.

[Video footage]

Norman now finds himself in the future with a new car design behind him.

Norman in vision:

I think we find ourselves in the future!
