KUALA LUMPUR, 2 MARCH 2015- Malaysian student teams did the country proud again by bagging three awards at Shell Eco-marathon Asia 2015 yesterday. This year’s winners bested over 120 student teams from 17 countries across Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa – including new entrants from Australia, Bangladesh, Oman and Saudi Arabia. They were amongst the students from Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa who conquered the streets of Luneta Park, Manila to set five new mileage records at Shell Eco-marathon Asia.
Team UiTM Eco-Sprint from Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Shah Alam Malaysia bettered their own winning result last year to champion the Prototype Hydrogen Fuel Cell category with a record mileage of 315 km/m3. The design of their winning entry, SperMotive-3, was inspired by MH370 and MH17 and dedicated it as a tribute to the families, friends and victims of the tragedies. Team Eco-Voyager from University of Malaya came in second place in the same category with a record mileage of 216.0km/m3.
