School: IEFPS Mendizabala GLHBI (Spain)

Team: Gorbea

Car Name: Storm (Hydrogen Urban Concept category)

What is special about your car? The students, under the guidance of teachers, built the car body using fiberglass. They have adapted the chassis to the rules of the competition, looking for it to be streamlined and attractive. They have painted the vehicle to make it personal and different.

Why is fuel efficiency important to your team? We currently live in a world where we require an enormous amount of energy for our daily activities. Reducing energy consumption will allow us to live in better harmony with our environment without over-exploiting the environment.

Who or what inspired you on the way to Eco-marathon? The project was born in TKNIKA, "The Centre for Innovation in Basque Vocational Training," and it was initially developed by a group of teachers from various institutes of the Basque Country, among whom were the Mendizabala Institute and the "Miguel Altuna" Institute. Both institutes continue working on the project, trying to improve every year.
