ITS Campus, ITS News – Successfully achieving many proud achievements in energy-efficient car competitions both nationally and internationally, the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) Sapuangin Team confirmed that they are determined to win the upcoming Shell Eco-Marathon (SEM) 2022 title. For this reason, the latest formation from the Sapuangin Team, which is ready to compete in SEM 2022, was inaugurated at the soft launching event at the ITS Rectorate Building Tuesday (26/4).

In his inauguration remarks, ITS Deputy Chancellor IV Bambang Pramujati ST MSc Eng PhD said that during the past 10 years, the Sapuangin Team’s achievements are worth being proud of as ITS’s representative. “Similarly, this year, ITS’s great hope is given to the (Sapuangin) team to maintain the winning tradition that has been maintained for years,” he said.

Supporting this statement, one of the coaches of the Sapuangin Team who has accompanied the team for 10 years, Dr. Ir Witantyo MEngSc, revealed that the proud achievements of the Sapuangin Team could be achieved due to good hard work among all members. “Don’t forget the role of sponsors and other supporting parties who always accompany the team’s journey,” he said gratefully.

On the same occasion, the Technical Manager of the ITS Sapuangin Team, Mochamad Izhar Murti explained that the Shell Eco-Marathon is a prestigious annual event with a worldwide scope. To provide the best, the Sapuangin team has been preparing for a long time, including related technology research. “This year, Sapuangin designed a vehicle that will be contested in lighter conditions than last year to increase its efficiency,” he explained.

He further explained a few plans to change the competition this year. Namely, the selection process will be divided into each country, no longer continental regions like in previous years. “The team preparation has now reached 70 percent to be ready to advance in the competition,” he said optimistically.
