About the Team

 

We are a group of Cal Poly students passionate about cutting-edge automotive technology. Every year we build a prototype vehicle to compete in Shell's Eco-Marathon Competition, a race focused strictly on fuel efficiency. These vehicles are designed and manufactured entirely in house by our dedicated student members, and run only on normal, 87-octane gasoline. At the 2016 competition, Ventus II (pictured above) earned 3rd place out of 40+ teams by achieving 1215 miles per gallon. We are currently in the design phase for next year's competition in 2017, with a goal of besting Cal Poly's all-time school record of 2752 MPG.
