After 72 hours of work in four days, a team of uOttawa engineering students won the Communications Award at the 2017 Shell Eco-marathon Americas challenge.
The annual challenge is an energy efficiency driving competition that took place in Detroit, Michigan from April 27-30, 2017.
The uOttawa team designed and built a fuel-efficient vehicle that was aerodynamic and had a perfected steering system. It was also able to complete four out of the required 10 laps in order to qualify for the internal combustion category.
