The student team of Turin Polytechnics H2politO stood out in the international competition for low energy-consumption vehicles, Shell Eco-marathon 2021, ranking 7th in the world list with JUNO prototype and 25th with IDRAkronos. However, it is worth highlighting the particular places in the 1st Global ranking Virtual Technical Inspection for the Prototypes category and the Urban Concept category, the 3rd Global ranking Pitch the Future “Decarbonising the home” and the 2nd EMEA ranking Overall Europa & Africa ranking Simulate to innovate Off-track Award.
The Virtual Technical Inspection race required presenting, in a 7-minute video, all the aspects of the vehicle that make it compliant with the regulation, also from the safety point of view, for the participation in the Shell Eco-marathon.
«Despite difficulties – stated the professor Massimiliana Carello, Faculty Advisor of H2politO Team- the Team has worked with passion at this new competition typology, achieving an important result. This goal is the fruit of the team’s effort and of the support by University and partner companies, which have never missed in these two difficult years. However, the development and the testing of JUNO and IDRAkronos vehicles were not given up, as witnessed by the double first place in the Virtual Technical Inspections with our two vehicles. Vehicles are competitive and we are looking forward to competing on the track again. We are waiting for 2022».
