The 2021 Virtual Programme – a step into the future.

2021 saw the launch of the first ever virtual programme with a new global Virtual League where teams earn points across a range of different challenges. From some brand-new competitions like Pitch the Future and the new Autonomous Programming Competition to the well-known Off-Track Awards this virtual programme had it all!

As the season is now over, you can find out which lucky teams have topped the Virtual League Table and those that won the individual competitions. Plus, in case you missed it live, you can watch the 2021 Season Finale show here.

Looking ahead to Shell Eco-marathon in 2022 – we are aiming to get back out on a track, when and where safely possible across the regions.

Watch this space and follow us on Instagram and Twitter for updates to the 2022 Programme and more.
