Over 100 student teams from all over Asia, Middle East and Africa gather in the Philippines in March for a unique four-day event to showcase, test and drive their self-built fuel-efficient vehicles on the streets of Manila. Shell Eco-marathon is a public event celebrating ideas and innovation, the best up-and-coming engineers, designers and inventors, and cutting-edge thinking about energy and mobility.

Shell Eco-marathon Asia is a visible demonstration of Shell’s commitment to help the world meet its growing energy needs in a responsible way by working together with students, partners and other stakeholders. Shell Eco-marathon challenges student teams from around the world to design, build and test ultra-energy-efficient vehicles.
