PICO actively supports numerous activities as part of its commitment to corporate social responsibility.  In order to promote education and young people in Egypt, PICO recently sponsored the Racing Team from Ain Shams University.  The team will participate in several prestigious international competitions in car manufacturing and racing.

The ASU Racing Team is comprised of passionate young Egyptians from Ain Shams School of Engineering.  In cooperation with faculty, students engage in a variety of projects aimed at increasing efficiency in the manufacturing of cars.  The university would eventually like to build a research department to specialize in manufacturing.

This is the second time the ASU team participated in the UK Race.  The team was recently promoted to Class A, and succeeded in winning the highest ranked Egyptian and Arab Team.

The ASU Racing Team also won 3rd place in the Shell Student Energy Challenge.  The ASU team will automatically advance to compete in Shell’s Eco-Marathon competition held in Manila, Philippines in February 2014.

PICO is very proud to sponsor the talented youth from the Ain Shams University Racing Team.
