This is a 10 million dollar race across the U.S. with a goal to develop the cleanest-running car ever without sacrificing driving range or affordability. The race starts in New York in 2009 and will conclude in 2010.
The goals of the race are simple: "We're going to create cars that will allow us to stop giving our wealth to other countries for petroleum. We'll make history by making gasoline history".
With oil again going up quite a bit on world markets, the quicker this comes about the better it is for all of us.
