This year a total of 55 UrbanConcept student teams from the region were on track, pitting their innovative vehicles against each other in sub-categories spanning internal combustion engine, battery electric power and hydrogen fuel cell.

The UrbanConcept cars seem largely more reliable than in previous years. We already have quite a number of valid runs than ever before. They seem, over all, more reliable and I think being on a professional race track with ample space, big turns for overtaking helped the students to achieve better results” explained Norman Koch, Global General Manager, Make the Future Live and Shell Eco Marathon.

SHELL ECO-MARATHON ASIA 2019 FIRST NIGHT RACE GLOBALLY

The competition, the first night race in the history of Shell Eco-marathon globally, was a new experience for both the spectators and participants. “The night race added the extra excitement factor to the racing and of course it helps the driver to concentrate, not driving in the heat of the day. The cooler temperatures may have helped the results outcome” said Norman.
