2020 Shell Eco-marathon Virtual Programme update:

The global impacts of COVID-19 have meant that all physical events in 2020 have been cancelled. However, while we can’t gather around a track, we’re delighted to share the latest on the alternative Shell Eco-marathon virtual programme.

Make the Future showcases the ongoing actions Shell is taking to help create a more sustainable, renewable, energy-rich, lower carbon future.
