THAI STUDENT TEAMS SAIL THROUGH TECHNICAL INSPECTION AT shell eco-marathon Asia 2014 IN manila

THE FIRST 2 OF OVER 100 TEAMS TO PASS!


Technical inspection sorts out the perfectly prepared cars from those that need revisions and Thai student teams were the first 2 teams at Shell Eco-Marathon, now being held in Manila, to pass this inspection ahead of over 100 student teams!

 

“We have strict specifications – cars must pass safety and technical tests,” says Joe Redfield, who is testing the battery electric vehicles. “If they don’t meet all the requirements we won’t allow them onto the track.”

 

“ATE.1” team from Kong Thabbok Upatham Changkol Kho So Tho Bo School, “How Much Ethanol” team from Panjavidhya Technological College, was the first 2 teams to have passed the inspection early yesterday afternoon.  Today they will be practicing with the fuel efficient vehicles they designed and built on the street circuit in Manila and get themselves ready to compete over the weekend.  Wish them luck!                

 
About Shell Eco-marathon

Shell Eco-marathon began in 1939 at a Shell research laboratory in the United States as a friendly wager between scientists to see who could get the most miles per gallon from their vehicle. The winner of that contest barely achieved 50 mpg (21 km/l), and from these humble origins, a more organized competition evolved. In 1985 in France, Shell Eco-marathon as we know it today was born. In April 2007, Shell Eco-marathon Americas event was launched in the United States, and in 2010, the inaugural Shell Eco-marathon Asia was held in Malaysia. Malaysia hosted Shell Eco-Marathon Asia until 2013. In 2014, the event is being held in Manila, Philippines, which will continue to host the event until 2016.

This year in Thailand-what next?


AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.
