Around the World in 80 Days?


An old time classic from Jules Verne, comes to life! Last week I spoke to Frank Manders from 80DR, who is organizing a sustainable race around the world in 80 days. The only criterium for the vehicles that enter: they can have no combustion engine! (you read that right, no internal, or external)

The race is due to start in 2016 and is looking to add teams, sponsors and cities to share in their plans. If you are interested, please look to the two downloadable brochures I received:
