Got a non-petroleum powered car? Race it to Vegas
The Escape from Berkeley race will pit makers of vehicles that don't use petroleum-based fuel against each other in a mad dash from the Bay Area city to Sin City
Update July 19, 2008: Escape from Berkeley is now scheduled for Oct. 10-13, 2008.
If you're a regular reader of Geek Gestalt, but not of its sister blog, Green Tech, I thought I'd point you to an entry I just posted there about what sounds like one heck of a cool event scheduled for this summer.
The so-calledrace will task contestants with getting their non-petroleum-based fuel vehicles from the famously liberal Bay Area city to the famously outrageous Sin City, Las Vegas, over the July 4 weekend.
Part Burning Man, part Power Tool Drag Races, part DARPA Grand Challenge, Escape from Berkeley should be a sight to behold.
