HiGtech are of course planning to attend at the Shell Eco Marathon 2015.

Currently we are looking at areas for improvement and have simulated several parts of Nova. Simulations will be used more frequently than before in our development activities this year.

The picture above shows an alternative to our present body. We run various prototypes in a simulated wind tunnel, which shows the magnitude of the drag force.

The engine with the surrounding parts are being optimized. The engine is soon to be connected to a test bench, in which it will be loaded and the fuel consumption will be measured.
