Malaysians set to save fuel on the world stage

Published on July 6th, 2010

Light footed Malaysians, Jason Lai and Josephine Lee, are all set to squeeze every last kilometer out of a liter of Shell fuel at the Shell Eco-Marathon Asia at the Sepang International Circuit on 8 and 9 July in a bid to be crowned Asia’s Smartest FuelSaver.

“The first ever Shell Eco-marathon in Asia promises to be the ultimate test of fuel efficient driving for the students who take part. Against this backdrop, Shell Retail will be holding the Asia’s Smartest FuelSaver Challenge, in which our contestants will show just how far a regular motorist can go on a single litre of fuel in an ordinary road car,” said Azman Ismail, Managing Director of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd.

In preparing for the challenge, Lai and Lee will be put through an intensive Shell FuelSave Academy course lead by fuel efficiency experts together with Fuel Economy Guinness World Record holders John and Helen Taylor.

“After championing the Shell 1 Litre Challenge in Germany and Malaysia in 2009, I am thrilled to be supporting Team Malaysia as they compete against the best of the best at this year’s Asia’s Smartest FuelSaver Challenge”, said television host and actor, Fahrin Ahmad, who is also Shell Malaysia’s FuelSave Ambassador.

This year marks the first time the Shell Eco-Marathon is coming to the east, having been hosted for the last 20 years in Europe and the USA. Malaysia will be playing host to 83 teams from 11 countries that will compete to design and build cars to travel as far as possible on the least amount of fuel.

The Asia’s Smartest Driver Challenge will be held concurrently with the Eco-Marathon and follows an identical format to the previous events held in Europe. The winner gets to drive home in a brand new fuel efficient vehicle.
