On Monday the UBC Supermileage Team had the opportunity to take part in the Canadian Innovation Summit hosted by Shell. The Summit was the first to be held in Canada and was a chance for Canadian business and technology leaders to meet with global thought leaders, policy makers, and experts from various sectors of industry and the community to discuss issues such as future energy demands and literacy. We were there exhibiting our team and our experiences building super-fuel-efficient vehicles, and throughout the day several excellent seminars and talks were given by influential Canadians including retired astronaut Chris Hadfield and  Ellis Ross, the Chief Councilor of the Haisla Nation. It was an amazing experience to meet and speak to so many innovative individuals!

The UBC Supermileage Team returned from the Shell Eco-Marathon Americas this week with some impressive results. We achieved 5th place out of about 60 in our first year back in the gasoline prototype division with the 1383 mpg Mark VIII! The Odysseus doubled last year’s mileage and took 2nd with 577 mpg, putting us back on the podium for the first time since 2006! Great work team and thank you sponsors!
