Team ZeroC

Team ZeroC is the name of the group of students and teachers of ITIS "Leonardo da Vinci" high school in Carpi (MO). Involved in the Shell Eco Marathon International competition.

The origin of the competition dates back to 1939, in a Shell Research Laboratory in the US, as a friendly wager among scientists, the target of the bet was getting the most mileage per gallon of fuel in their vehicles. The competition evolved, spreading to Europe. The Shell Eco-marathon in its current form Began in 1985 in France, attracting thousands of young engineers and scientists from 20 European countries.

The principle of the Shell Eco-marathon is simple: to design and build a vehicle that uses the minimum possible amount of fuel to cover a certain distance. Teams can create futuristic prototypes with the goal of reducing consumption by maximizing efficiency.

Vehicles can be powered by conventional fuel (diesel, gasoline, gasoline / LPG) and not (GTL, solar, bio-ethanol, hydrogen).

Technical Institutes and Universities of Europe challenge in the competition.


Escorpio is the name of the prototype with which our team participates in the competition.

The name comes from one of the many inventions of Leonardo da Vinci, it was a vessel used in war to collide with the enemy ships with its metal rostrum.

But do not worry! Our team has no warlike intentions and under the hull of Escorpio you will only find wires, gears, wheels and a very calm ...... pilot!
