With three main events in Asia, Americas and Europe, the competition attracts thousands of young engineers and students aiming to push the boundaries of energy efficiency on the road.

Students have a year to design, build and test their vehicle before competing on a purpose-built track.

Winning is about the right combination of energy source, streamlined design, lightweight materials and driving strategy.

The current record stands at 3,771km/l – that’s from London to Helsinki and back again on just one litre of fuel!
