The TP Eco Flash team have competed in Shell Eco-marathon for three years. No strangers to success, the team won the Asia on-track award in the Hydrogen Prototype category during the 2018/19 programme in only their second year of participation.
With a total of 12 team members with complementary skill sets, the TP Eco Flash team was able to clearly define roles and responsibilities for the design and build of their vehicle. Those studying mechatronics were responsible for the drawing and design aspects of the project, while electronics students were tasked with creating the team vehicle’s custom printed circuit board. Team members who were from the Clean Energy major focused on the design of the hydrogen fuel cell and energy storage systems on the vehicle.
The TP Eco Flash team are an ambitious group, and Shell Eco-marathon has added to this ambition. The team’s enjoyment of Shell Eco-marathon has inspired many of them to pursue careers as motorsport engineers, and one team member was keen on a getting into Formula One as a race engineer.
