Team hugging after winning award

The Off-Track Awards showcase the range of skills that go into each Shell Eco-marathon project and recognise the outstanding achievements of the teams off the track.

On Wednesday, June 3, 2020, Asia Off-Track winners were announced on Instagram and Twitter. Norman Koch, Global General Manager Shell Eco-marathon, hosted the virtual awards ceremony, and was joined by a panel of judges, alongside special guest Charles Leclerc, Scuderia Ferrari F1 Driver to announce the winning teams.

The competition was tough in all six categories, as we received more than 100 submissions from 50 different teams across 16 countries, and judging was no easy task! Our expert panel went through a rigorous selection process to determine the winning teams who will receive USD 3,000 in prize money each category.

Read on for the full list of 2020 Asia Off-Track Award winners.
