The Brunei contingents to the Shell Eco-marathon Asia (SEMA) 2018 comprising of students from Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD), Universiti Teknologi Brunei (UTB) and Politeknik Brunei (PB) today joined over 120 student teams from 18 countries across Asia Pacific and the Middle East, to compete in this year’s competition held at the Changi Exhibition Centre in Singapore held from 8th-11th March 2018. Brunei’s participation to the event is greatly supported by Brunei Shell Petroleum Co Sdn Bhd (BSP) in collaboration with the Ministry of Education (MOE) through UBD, UTB and PB.

Shell Eco-marathon is a competition for students who are passionate about developing innovative mobility solutions. It challenges engineering, design, science and technology students to design, build and drive the world’s most energy-efficient vehicle.

This year, the Brunei teams will be participating in one category which is the Prototype category – futuristic and highly aerodynamic vehicles.

Following a very intensive safety and technical inspection check held three days ago, all three proudly Brunei self-built vehicles by the students made it through with flying colours, ready to race the track.

All vehicles must pass a set of technical inspections before they are allowed onto the Shell Eco-Marathon Asia 2016 competition circuit to see how far they can go on the least amount of fuel, and potentially achieve the highest mileage in the competition.

Today after much work both Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) GenNext Pejuang and Universiti Teknologi Brunei (UTB) ITB One-U are proud to receive their technical and safety inspection stickers.

After passing their inspections from redesigning their braking system, more challenges were faced by ITB One-U during their trial run.

According to one of the Mechanical students, Ahmad Amthali, “We fixed the brake system with new brake layout and fixed all of it and we managed to pass the brake system inspection this morning. However, when we went to do the pre-test run, Pahlawan II’s tyres burst and we had to go out to buy new tyres from the shops which costs us two hours.

We are honoured to be able to represent UTB and Brunei in such prestigious event. We will do our very best for UTB and Brunei.”
UBD GenNext Pejuang passed their technical and safety inspection after several attempts to pass the stringent hydrogen fuel cell system inspection.

Once the Nakhoda’s hydrogen system sequence was in place, the team had to readjust its hydrogen sensor’s sensitivity and rewire its capacitor to ensure easy access to read Nakhoda’s voltage.

Team UTB after passing the technical inspection

“Our issue was with the hydrogen system sequence, which took a while to fix. We were in the technical inspection for an hour and a half before we finally passed! At 1.30pm, I went on the track for my first attempt, however after the 7th lap, I had to return to my team as we had run out of time. We are going to make some changes to the gearing system to speed up the car,” said Amirah Salamat, Nakhoda’s driver.

Although faced with unforeseen challenges, the students continue to show enthusiasm and determination by endlessly making adjustments to their vehicles. They hope to achieve a valid official record on the track tomorrow as it will be the last day of the competition.

In addition to awards for achievements on the track, students are also vying for five Off-Track awards that test the team’s creativity and technical skills, as well as their approaches to safety and sustainability. These awards are in the following categories: Communications, Vehicle Design, Technical Innovation, Safety and Perseverance and Spirit of the Event.

As of noon today, over 80 student teams have passed the technical inspection. Student teams have today and tomorrow to record their attempts on the circuit. The final results will be tabulated and announced at the closing awards ceremony tomorrow.

About Shell Eco-marathon

Shell Eco-marathon began in 1939 at a Shell research laboratory in the United States as a friendly wager between scientists to see who could get the most miles per gallon from their vehicle. The winner of that contest barely achieved 50 mpg (21 km/l), and from these humble origins, a more organized competition evolved. In 1985 in France, Shell Eco-marathon as we know it today was born. In April 2007, the Shell Eco-marathon Americas event was launched in the United States, and in 2010, the inaugural Shell Eco-marathon Asia was held in Malaysia, up until 2013. Since 2014, the event has been held in Manila, Philippines, which will continue to host the event until 2016.

Asia 2015 Day #1

By: Nazurah Noor

All four of the Bruneian teams from Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) and Pusat Latihan Mekanik (PLM) have now successfully completed and passed the tough pre-race Technical Inspections at the Shell Eco Marathon Asia 2015 competition in Luneta Park, Manila, in the Philippines on Saturday, 28th February 2015.

Joining the ranks of yesterday’s Bruneian success in Manila were UBD’s GenNext Harapan and PLM’s Alpha 7 and their battery electric vehicles – the silver black ‘Nakhoda’ vehicles and the golden ‘Panglima Seventy One 77’, respectively.

GenNext Harapan’s vehicle, the ‘Mutiara’, qualified past the rigorous testing of Technical Inspection late on Saturday.

Rafi from team GenNext Harapan

Muhamad Rafiuddin Bin Maidin, who is currently a UBD student reading Masters in Physics by Research, explained his team’s developments: ” In the first attempt, the inspectors found a few issues. Today, we improved the enclosure wall of the vehicle shell to protect our driver from exposure to the brake and wheels. We also adjusted our brakes, seat belts and electrics of the motor.”

Sing Yew, team GenNext Harapan's electrical expert

Then Sing Yew, in charge of the electrical part of team Harapan, commented on this team’s much awaited inspection success on a third attempt: “It’s what we’ve been hoping for over the last few days. Most importantly, we explained very clearly what we have done. It was more to do with demonstrating the depth of our understanding of the car, rather than what we have actually built. The inspectors responded very positively and we even received very good comments.”

He added, “We are feeling excited and very happy. But we now need to focus on the next part, which is to break Mutiara’s previous SEMA record last year.”

In 2014, the ‘Mutiara’ made it to the Top 10 in the SEMA competition’s Battery Electric category, clocking in 112 kilowatts hour of energy for 10 laps in 24 minutes. [continue reading…]

BIBD, via its Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, showed its full support for Asari Rashid to become the first Bruneian to participate in the Polar Circle Marathon. BIBD’s support for Asari was aimed to create and raise awareness for developing a community that cares, whilst playing its role as an integral and strong partner of the community.

This partnership is developed to encourage a positive influence and inspire other members of the community to support similar awareness raising efforts. Asari is an epileptic PhD student from Newcastle University, UK and a lecturer in Institut Teknologi Brunei. He is also the 1st Bruneian to run the Polar Circle Marathon, participating in the Polar Bear Challenge, which tested his ability to run both the marathon and a half-run within the two days of the competition.

Earlier before the Polar Circle Marathon, Asari mentioned, “I’ve had a lot of people telling me it’s difficult but this is something I really want to try.” Asari, clearly unfazed by the idea of the run, continued, “I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2009 with tendency of having seizures but it has never stopped me from doing what I love. I am also very thankful to BIBD for providing me with the opportunity to embark on my dream, as together we are able to show the world that everyone has the ability to succeed, regardless of their drawbacks.

“I was inspired to take the feat in order to raise awareness of the needs of people with diseases and show that we are both resilient and determined not to let it become an obstacle in pursuing our dreams including achieving better education. Everyone needs education and it will start from their adolescence, children need to be given as much opportunity in life as possible.”

Asari is no stranger to long distance running, having trained with the Tyne Bridge Harriers running club, had already competed in numerous challenges including completed a Aviva Singapore Ironman 70.3, three marathons, and an Ultramarathon “The Wall” from Carlisle to Newcastle Gateshead, which saw him running 110km miles in an impressive 15hrs and 55mins. The Polar Circle Marathon included a classic 42.195km marathon and a half marathon.

The Marathon was held in the worst running conditions of under – 20°C in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland for two consecutive days. Starting at Kangerlussuaq, the run passes the endless ice and arctic tundra of Greenland, which makes up the glacial deposit landscapes and soundless arctic desert. Part of the route takes place on the 100,000-year-old ice sheet but the main part of the race is run on roads, mostly covered in snow that connects to the inland ice just north of the Polar Circle.

A similar effort for awareness, BIBD’s ALAF Programme (Advocating Life-Long Learning for An Aspiring Future), provides a similar avenue for all members of the public to support and provide assistance to underprivileged and orphaned students, through sponsorships of basic needs, educational items and welfare, as well as mentoring and counselling, so that the students can stay focused on their education and maximise their potential.

Through ALAF, BIBD hopes to lend its support to His Majesty’s 2035 vision of achieving a 100 per cent level of education and over time, reduce poverty in Brunei. To further support the aspiration of this program and to enable the deserving students to pursue their education and dreams, members of the public are welcome to provide contributions with a minimum of B$1.01 via the bank’s e-banking channels, BIBD Online, BIBD Mobile, or use any BIBD ATM machines.

The public can also use the standing instruction function in their accounts to provide a continuous donation stream into the ALAF account at 1018181811.

Asari is an epileptic PhD student from Newcastle University, UK and a lecturer in Institut Teknologi Brunei. He is also the 1st Bruneian to run the Polar Circle Marathon, participating in the Polar Bear Challenge, which tested his ability to run both the marathon and a half-run within the two days of the competition.

Earlier before the Polar Circle Marathon, Asari mentioned, “I’ve had a lot of people telling me it’s difficult but this is something I really want to try.” Asari, clearly unfazed by the idea of the run, continued, “I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2009 with tendency of having seizures but it has never stopped me from doing what I love. I am also very thankful to BIBD for providing me with the opportunity to embark on my dream, as together we are able to show the world that everyone has the ability to succeed, regardless of their drawbacks.

“I was inspired to take the feat in order to raise awareness of the needs of people with diseases and show that we are both resilient and determined not to let it become an obstacle in pursuing our dreams including achieving better education. Everyone needs education and it will start from their adolescence, children need to be given as much opportunity in life as possible.”

Asari is no stranger to long distance running, having trained with the Tyne Bridge Harriers running club, had already competed in numerous challenges including completed a Aviva Singapore Ironman 70.3, three marathons, and an Ultramarathon “The Wall” from Carlisle to Newcastle Gateshead, which saw him running 110km miles in an impressive 15hrs and 55mins. The Polar Circle Marathon included a classic 42.195km marathon and a half marathon.

The Marathon was held in the worst running conditions of under – 20°C in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland for two consecutive days. Starting at Kangerlussuaq, the run passes the endless ice and arctic tundra of Greenland, which makes up the glacial deposit landscapes and soundless arctic desert. Part of the route takes place on the 100,000-year-old ice sheet but the main part of the race is run on roads, mostly covered in snow that connects to the inland ice just north of the Polar Circle.

A similar effort for awareness, BIBD’s ALAF Programme (Advocating Life-Long Learning for An Aspiring Future), provides a similar avenue for all members of the public to support and provide assistance to underprivileged and orphaned students, through sponsorships of basic needs, educational items and welfare, as well as mentoring and counselling, so that the students can stay focused on their education and maximise their potential.

Through ALAF, BIBD hopes to lend its support to His Majesty’s 2035 vision of achieving a 100 per cent level of education and over time, reduce poverty in Brunei. To further support the aspiration of this program and to enable the deserving students to pursue their education and dreams, members of the public are welcome to provide contributions with a minimum of B$1.01 via the bank’s e-banking channels, BIBD Online, BIBD Mobile, or use any BIBD ATM machines.

The public can also use the standing instruction function in their accounts to provide a continuous donation stream into the ALAF account at 1018181811.

On Saturday October 18, 2014 and Sunday October 19, 2014 athletes from Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, China and Indonesia will gather at the Multipurpose Hall of the National Stadium for Battle Royale, hosted by GETFIT CrossFit.

Brunei’s first CrossFit affiliate, GETFIT CrossFit, will be hosting 80 athletes from over 10 CrossFit affiliates at Battle Royale 2014. Battle Royale is GETFIT CrossFit’s annual competition based on CrossFit movements. Much like the CrossFit Asia Regionals, their aim is to provide a platform for local crossfitters, athletes and fitness enthusiasts to challenge and test themselves through competition. The competition will start at 8:00am until 5:00pm on both days.

GETFIT CrossFit are also extremely proud to introduce the new logo for Battle Royale. The logo consists of two ancient weapons; a “Kelasak” and two “Kampilan”. “These weapons are proudly held by officers of the Royal Regalia of our beloved Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam. Both are symbols of perfection of our country’s customs and tradition which date back to before the 7th century. We have always been inspired by our culture to strive to beat the odds whatever they may be, and this logo reminds us that every athlete had to start from somewhere,” said Coach Sekhon, Head Coach, GETFIT CrossFit.

GETFIT CrossFit has been working around the clock preparing for this weekend’s event. “I am most looking forward to seeing the athletes in action!” said Coach Sekhon. When asked why the general public should come and spectate, he replied: “There is a lot of hidden talent in Brunei. You would be surprised to know what they are capable of! People are always going outside of the country to compete in fitness events. This is one where regional athletes are coming over to Brunei (some for the first time) to compete with us.”

“We are proud to host Battle Royale for all, and we will do our best to put on an amazing show for the general public. Also, the Brunei Calisthenics Group will be showcasing their talents in a demo on Sunday October 19, 2014 at 12:30pm. They are incredible in what they can do on a pull up bar!”

A number of local CrossFit athletes were interviewed about Battle Royale and what they were looking forward to:

“The challenge and fun,” Nizam Bakar, graduate development trainee; “Meeting my CrossFit friends and challenging each other,” Noi Harun, quantity surveyor;

“The competition – against others and myself,” Delwin Keasberry, commercial manager;

“Meeting new and old friends from Brunei and beyond, and to challenging my fitness,” Boon Chu Woo, medical scientist;

“To another excellent event; where people can showcase their abilities and fitness. Also, to see how far they have come from the event in 2013. It should be great for both competitors and spectators alike,” Mas Idris, IT executive director;

“Competition is tough this year. I am looking forward to give my best, and most importantly to enjoy every moment of it,” Amalina Abdullah, crossfitter.

What is CrossFit? It is a strength and conditioning fitness programme designed to challenge and improve cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. CrossFit is most commonly described as “Constantly Varied Functional Movements executed at High Intensity”. Founded in 2000 in the United States of America, CrossFit now has over 10,000 affiliated gyms around the world. GETFIT CrossFit held its first public session in December 2010, and now they now host daily exercise programmes at two locations, in Telanai and Pandan 4. For more information, visit www.getfitcrossfit.com or search GETFIT CrossFit on Instagram and Facebook.
