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.

Global rules for Shell Eco-marathon 2020

The Shell Eco-marathon 2020 Official Chapter I Rules, are updated every year and must be strictly adhered to by every participating team to design and build their cars for competitions. These global rules contain all the technical information, safety requirements and information on energy categories and vehicle types that teams must follow. Rules for the 2021 season are expected later this year.

In addition, the Chapter I rules provide criteria for Global Off-track awards.

There are additional specific rules for each individual Shell Eco-marathon competition whether Challenger, Regional, World Championship or Autonomous competition. These are released to teams ahead of the competition event dates.
