Five teams from four universities of Vietnam will attend the Shell Eco-marathon Asia, held in Manila, the Philippines from February 6-9 next year.

The competition will attract the participation of 157 student teams from 16 nations in Asia and Middle East.

At the annual competition, participating teams choose one of the two types “Basic model” (Prototype) and “Urban model” (Urban Concept). Winners are the teams that go furthest using the least amount of fuel.

In addition to be a playing ground in technology and application, the event will offer a chance for students to understand how to prepare for, design and operate a vehicle and take use of available fuels.-VNA
