ERJ staff report (DS)
Houston, Texas -- 70 teams from 18 high schools and 31 universities across North America - including Canada, Mexico and the United States - will participate in Shell Eco-marathon Americas 2011. They aim to push the boundaries of fuel efficiency and see which team can go the farthest using the least amount of energy at Shell Eco-marathon Americas, taking place April 14-17, 2011 on the streets of downtown Houston.
Shell is pleased to welcome the 2011 event sponsors, including Autodesk, Michelin, Pennzoil ULTRA, SKF USA Inc. and Southwest Research Institute.
According to Mark Singer, Global Project Manager for Shell Eco-marathon, â€œUsing today's - and tomorrow's - fuels in smart ways also makes our global Shell Eco-marathon competitions so inspiring. After 5,000 students and many designs, a French team achieved the equivalent of more than 11,000 miles per gallon during Shell Eco-marathon 2010 series. Now that's smarter use.â€
