Introducing the all-virtual alternative programme for the 2020 season.

While the global pandemic has meant the cancellation of all live events for the 2020 Shell Eco-marathon season, we have been working on a refreshed programme that will continue to recognise the hard work and passion that Shell Eco-marathon teams put in every year, and offer new ways to participate.

With some familiar competitions made completely virtual, to new virtual learning opportunities with industry experts, plus introducing brand new ways for teams to compete, we aim for Shell Eco-marathon to continue being a platform that inspires, challenges and provides students the chance to actively collaborate and learn in a virtual environment in 2020, even if unable to get together as a team.

So, read on to find out what we’ve been up to, what’s coming up and how you can get involved.
