Students Push the Fuel-Efficiency Envelope in Eco-Marathon
Every year hundreds of schoolchildren – some as young as 11 - push the boundaries of vehicle design to achieve eye-popping fuel efficiency in a "Schools Initiative" of the annual Shell Eco-Marathon.
The 2007 edition, held recently at the Rockingham race circuit in central England, saw hot competition between the youngsters to beat their nearest rivals – from the next town or even the next pit.
A team from Sandbach school in Cheshire came out top in the Schools Class with an impressive 792km/litre, good enough for 12th overall in the adult competition.
