Shell Eco-marathon er en internasjonal konkurranse for studenter, der man konkurrerer i å bygge en bil som kan kjøre så langt som mulig på en energiekvivalent tilsvarende en liter bensin. Vi fra NTNU stiller i år som tidligere år med kun ett mål for øyet: en ny verdensrekord. Bilen vi bygger, DNV Fuel Fighter, er både energieffektiv og teknologisk unik. Følg med oss helt frem til målstreken! PR- media manager: owrenn@gmail.com Phone: 98039305
