Sheffield Eco Motorsports

Shell Eco Marathon

Welcome to the University of Sheffield Eco-Motorsports team website. Feel free to look around.

Who We Are

We are the Sheffield University team competing in the Shell Eco Marathon, an international engineering competition hosted every year by Shell. The goal of the competition isn't which car crosses the finish line first - it's the car that completes the furthest distance using the least amount of energy! Our team competes in the prototype vehicle class; building and racing a battery electric vehicle. 

Our student team comprises of 22 engineering students from a range of engineering disciplines to cover all design aspects of our vehicle: Electronic and Electrical, Automatic Controls and Systems, Mechanical, Computer Science and Aerospace. 

Our goal is to build a car of the future with key focus on energy efficiency and sustainability. We hope that by competing in the Shell Eco Marathon, student team-members can gain valuable hands-on engineering experience on a real project.  Furthermore, our members get the opportunity to further develop other skills, such as presentation, communication, organisational and management. 

We run a recruitment at the start of each academic year, which consists of an online application form allowing prospective members the chance to showcase their engineering knowledge, expertise and passion for motor-sport and automotive engineering.
