Eco-Shell Marathon Results
The European Eco-Shell Marathon that we mentioned a few weeks ago has completed, with an entry from France's Lycee La Joliverie crowned the winner. The vehicle averaged 6,786 miles per gallon, which was slightly less than its trial run of 6,854 miles per gallon. The range of cars and concepts was extremely diverse, with a vehicle that integrated its motor into a wheel, a car with a solar panel, a car that doubles as a coffee table, a dog-like vehicle, a vehicle covered in newspaper clippings, and a vehicle with protection from most sexually-transmitted diseases. Not a bad showing, but the cars all lack the chainsaws and machine gun attachments that would've made this event 1000 times more interesting.
