Aston University students entered their cardboard and plywood hydrogen-powered racecar in the Shell Eco-Design competition and won. Their eco car went up against a host of other student teams also hoping to win the coveted prize for the most sustainably designed vehicle. The winning team focused on a compact urban commuter that can fold flat for shipping, just in case you want to ship your car somewhere and can't find a big enough box.
The team was expected to participate in the Shell Eco-marathon Asia 2013 at the Sepang International Circuit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but bad weather forced Shell to call off the event. The next race will take place in Manila, Philippines in 2014 and the teams are asked to travel as far as possible in their DIY creations on less than one gallon of fuel.
